Holy bananas – it’s our last Wordful Wednesday of the month already! I can’t believe it! Actually, I can, which is why today’s word is so appropriate. I’m feeling very impatient today, my friends; even though January is flying by, it can’t fly fast enough, if you ask me. My reasons for this are twofold*
One: I’m still not feeling great and I want these germs to HURRY UP AND GET OUT OF MY SYSTEM ALREADY
Two: I’m going away on vacation next week and I want my departure date to just HURRY UP AND GET HERE ALREADY
(* Does using mature, responsible sounding words like “twofold” cancel out my inner eleven year old’s using shouty all caps? You’ll have to let me know in the Comments.)
Yes, I’m fleeing the polar vortex and going to Florida for a week, so it makes sense that today’s word is tetchy: impatient, irritable.
In other words …
I get extremely tetchy when I realize that I can’t travel through time and space like a certain Doctor after all, and have to actually endure time progressing onward in a linear fashion just like everyone else. My inner eleven year old sympathizes. She remembers what it felt like to find out that her magical Sword of Protection did not, in fact, turn her into She-Ra. (Allison Wong, if you’re reading this, no, I’m still not over it. Can we go to your house for lunch tomorrow? Your mom always has chocolate milk).
What superhero accessory would you most like to have? (Obviously, I choose the Doctor’s TARDIS, but She-Ra’s sword wouldn’t hurt). Tell me all about it in the Comments!
