WHIMSEY OR WHIMSY




I've often wondered at the spelling of this word so I finally went to the online dictionary.  This is what it said:  




whim·sy

[hwim-zee, wim-] Show IPA
noun, plural whim·sies.
1.
capricious humor or disposition; extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression: a play with lots of whimsy.
2.
an odd or fanciful notion.
3.
anything odd or fanciful; a product of playful or capricious fancy: a whimsy from an otherwise thoughtful writer.
Also, whimsey.

Origin:
1595–1605; whim(-wham) + -sy


2. caprice, whim, humor.
