One of my favorite Disney movies is “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie”. In the movie, Rabbit explains the dangers of heffalump hunting to Roo, who wants to join the expedition. “Just a moment Roo,” Rabbit says. “A heffalump expedition is fraught with danger.”
While Roo pleads with Rabbit to reconsider, Tigger leans down and says, “Now Roo, you just can’t argue with a word like fraught.”
Tigger is my favorite character within the Hundred Acre Wood, and that fact may explain why the word fraught became my favorite word after Tigger advised Roo.
