Extraordinary. Are you extraordinary? Are your friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers extraordinary? What is an extraordinary being? And no I do not mean a being like E. T. (Extra-Terrestail) Let me rephase that sentence – do you know an extraordinary person?
If you do have you ever said anything to them? Wrote them a little note? Entered them to win an award for what they do? Have you ever just said thank you for something you noticed they did for someone else?
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 Clip Art from Bing.com Malapart word from M-W’s Word of the Day Malapart definition from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.com

The light bulb is dimming, better get a new one. The lite candle is slowly dimming, it’s close to the bottom of the wick. The sun is setting, dimming the sky, Soon the moon will be up, bringing a moonlit night. Each day we dim a little ourselves. Then a surprise comes our way and the dimming subsides. Remember everyday you receive a surprise. Oh Yes You Do! It’s not a huge thing like your birthday or Christmas gifts. You look out your window and you see life starting for the day. Flower bud opening up, birds chirping, neighbor picking up their newspaper that is 20 feet away from their door. I know you have a grin on your face, because your neighbor complains everyday. I hope after reading this, your dimness has left for the day.
