5 Words that I underuse

1. Jerk

It’s been far too long since I’ve called someone a jerk.

Here, let me start the ball rolling.

Just because you live in a trashcan doesn't give you the right to be a jerk, Oscar!

Just because you live in a trashcan doesn’t give you the right to be a jerk, Oscar!

You grouchy fucking jerk.

2. Fanny

The next time I fall down, instead of yelling, “help, I’ve fallen on my ass!” I will say, “help, I have fallen on my fanny!”

3. Schmuck

Schmuck is just fun to say. It rolls on the tip of the tongue just so.


With a schmuck, schmuck here, and a schmuck, schmuck there…

4. Putz

Putz can be used as a noun or a verb.

“That bank manager is a putz.”

5. Nincompoop

I’ll let Mittens give you an example of this frequently underused word.


Any there words you would add to the list?

Fatigue is no friend of mine

Ever since my hospitalization due to that funky infection last month, I have been deep down and dirty exhausted.

Being exhausted is very different than just being tired. It’s a complete lack of energy and mojo. I have to literally propel myself through such simple tasks as taking a shower.

Fatigue is no friend of mine, my friends.

I am certain that my fibro is actually getting worse. I have pain now that even a full Vicodin doesn’t touch.

The last few days, I have had absolutely no interest in writing anything, because all I can think about is taking a nap.

On the bright side, I found a challenge that I think I can actually follow through with.


Until next time, may your pillows be fluffy and your sheets not scratchy.
