A little football humor for my friend, Dan !
Now, on to the Wednesday Word of the Week:
"I call myself a meliorist - a man who believes that by human actions wisely directed the world can be made a better place."
The excerpt speaks for itself. All that is necessary to add is that just as we have good, better, best, so Latin has bonus, meliorus, optimus.
(copied from Maxwell Nurnberg's book, 'I always look up the word egregious')
I chose the word in deference to my essay linked in yesterday's entry, The World is Inherently Good! .
Fuzzy is home today with a stomach virus. No fever, and it doesn't seem too horrible. Enough to make him throw up, though. Hopefully, the worst is over.
I still have not received my xray results. The stupid Advair powder inhaler that is supposed to make my cough better, is making it worse. Ack.
I am cranky today. Yesterday, too. Disheartened some. Feeling crappy can get you down when it is going on three months. Add that to the constant pain and soreness and you have the recipe for being quite bitchy at times.
Yesterday afternoon Hubby called me on it. I knew I was being bitchy and just couldn't stop it. So, I apologized.
Then, since he can rarely leave well enough alone, he started to continue to ride me verbally about being a bitch.
So, I snapped. ''DO YOU THINK I WANT TO BE THIS WAY??? I HURT, I FEEL SICK - GIVE ME A FRICKIN' BREAK!'
Yeah... kind of bitchy again, but he got it and shut up, and we moved on. lol
Some days isn't easy being my husband, I am sure...
... but it ain't easy being me either. ;-/ <sigh>
Just to give you an idea about how wacky I can be sometimes, last night I couldn't sleep. I was coughing and sore and cranky.
Comfort food was in order, so I made deviled eggs. 3 of them. Just for me. Yeah, at midnight. I know, nuts. Yep. Certifiable.
They were really good though, if I may say so myself. LOL
Ah well... time to go.
