Today was an extremely, humid, sultry, close, airless, stifling, oppressive, muggy, sticky, and sweltering day.
It was NOT the kind of day for weeding and yet what did I begin this ridiculously hot day with?
After perspiring over half of my body weight in a matter of half an hour, I puddled back into my abode.
Only to be greeted by my offspring with a hearty hail of, “Hey, is it Hot out there or what?”
“Wow, I did not know that my highly observant, clever, and quick-witted progeny,” I responded in a haughty, mocking tone.
Such an Oy Vey / Face Palm moment.
We attempted in vain to make today our, “First Official School Day of the 2014-15 Year.” It was a fine endeavor, but alas and alack we missed our mark. We finished about three quarters of our list. “Sigh”
Wow, I HAVE to lay off the Tolkien Books.
The Middle Earth locution has invaded and overrun my lexicon.
