word of the day – peccavi

A word a day – peccavi: An admission of guilt or sin.

The story goes that in 1843, after annexing the Indian province of Sind, British General Sir Charles Napier sent home a one word telegram, "Peccavi" implying "I have Sind." Although apocryphal, it’s still a great story.
