What's Hermeneutics, Anyway?

The conversation went something like this:

A young male friend lopped over to my section of the choir room  in his oversized robe.

"Hi!" I said, "how are you?"  "Fine!" Tim replied.

"And what classes have you signed up for this term?" I asked. 

"Something-or-another and Hermenuetics."  Said Tim.

"What's "Hermenuetics?" I asked.

Meanwhile, a choir buddy seated on my other side, shifted in her seat, adjusted her robe over her legs to get more warm from the frigid air conditioning and echoed my question, "Yes, what is that?"

"Well, it's a way to study the Bible."  My young friend replied.

A nice $20 theological word, isn't it?
