Malapert

Hi Everyone!

What the heck? Let me break up the word:
Mal = bad or badly,
Apert = open, honest,
Put them both together you get “malapert” = a bold or impudent person.

In other words someone who is “open” or “honest” in a bad way.

Do you know anyone that is like that?
If you said no, then I think you better recheck your family, friends, neighbors, work place.

Still no, wake up! Smell the coffee! Smell the roses!
Come on now, recheck!! Recheck!!! I know you can do it!!!!
Oh My Gosh!! Am I being “malapert” in my writing today??

Have a great day! Hope

Cruciverbalists

Hi Everyone!

My neighbor is a “cruciverbalist”. On the weekends his whole family is involved. Unbelievable how they test each other.

They invited us over one time. Great people and good sports about being a “cruciverbalist”. They explained to us what we have to look for and then decieve if that is the correct spelling, number of letters, will this work well with the other words going across and down.

We now have monthly challenges. I really have to thank my neighbors for learning something new, creative, mind boggingly, entertaining.
Thank you neighbors for showing us the meaning of crossword puzzles, how to challenge others with words.

So what the heck is a “cruciverbalist”?

Back in the beginning the puzzles were called “word crosses” and their creators because known as “cruciverbalist”.

Hello “A LA Carte”!

Hi everyone! veggies
Have you ever wondered what “A La Carte” means?
It took me awhile of the true meaning before the light bulb went on for me.
It’s not the way a food is cooked.
It’s not the way a food is served.
It’s not a specific menu of special foods.
See the source imageSome people don’t realize until they get the bill and go WOW at the total.
It’s the way items are priced individually. It’s not only the food it is also the drinks you are having.
So if you think you are getting a deal because the price of each item looks cheaper, in the long run your total bill could be higher than if you ordered a complete meal. 
Depending on the restaurant “A La Carte” raspberrymay work out better for some if you don’t want certain foods that come with a complete meal. Now if you can substitute what you don’t want with something you prefer than stick with the complete meal.
The main think to me is to enjoy your food with family and friends.See the source image
Have a great day! twin boy girlHope

Daily Prompt: Sympathy

call lilly 2Sympathy

Hi Everyone!

  • blonde_hmmmHave you ever met a person that didn’t have any compassion when someone;
  • gets injured,
  • heart15heart crushed by a loved one, 
  • lose someone that has been sick,
  • in an accident,
  • killed, murdered, lost in the line of duty?

I have and it’s sad the way they act. And what’s even worse is the family can hear them. And they don’t care if they hear them or not.

After what I heard that, I don’t have any respect for that person. Mad waitress

  • Of course this person is the type that wants sympathy for themselves, no matter what happens to them, including breaking a finger nail.

NO SYMPATHY from me! woman

I may sound harsh to you, but I stand my ground in this incident!!!! 

  • rosie riveterI use my mother’s old saying for them “remember sympathy is between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.” [Miss & wish you were still here MOM!]
  • This an old, old saying from eons ago. If you go to English.stackexchange.com you will find definitions on why people may say those words.
    • “If you want my sympathy look it up in the dictionary it’s between shit and syphilis.”
    • I think this saying is for people who don’t care about others. BUT when it comes to them, you better care about them or else!

Working-woman-clipart-clipart-clubHave a great day! Hope

Hi everyone! Hope all is well.

Calm is a great word for the holidays. We get so stressed out on what to give each other.

Will they say they “love it”? And then you find out they gave it to someone else. Would you stay “calm”?

Are you calm today?

Have a great day & stay calm! HERS Daily Prompt Urgent
