Must every thread turn into this?  Confused

My word of the day

enervated - meaning ''drained of energy"

I'm not sure I've heard this word uttered much, in everyday speech, but the definition is unexpected.

Blame SS for not only not posting the word's actual definition, but only posting to troll people. But no doubt she, and others (C2?), will convince themselves that she somehow didn't start it. Rolleyes

At the very least, SS could have the good graces to vent her spleen in the thread that irked her, instead of spilling her vomit all over several threads.

Or just stop being umbrageous.

A point Syne made in his explanation of whatever he was trying to explain was his belief that SS has a skewed perspective on life relative to Syneworld - Syneishly ignoring the possibility that his own perspective on life might be the one skewed by factors unknown and irrelevant to this post.

You're a good listener.

Bumbershoot - same meaning as ''umbrella"

I might like bumbershoot a bit better than umbrella.

It's wet and rainy outside, don't forget your bumbershoot!
