I Guess Mermaids Are Sorta Like Water Angels.

The word of the day is: Sardonic.

[ sahr-don-ik ]                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           adjective
characterized by bitter or scornful derision; mocking; sneering; cynical;
a sardonic grin.

I love that I barely remember making notes on what I want to do for the word of day.

Because it leaves me to be surprised and amused at my own weird way of looking at stuff and thinking about stuff.

For example, my note on the word sanguine said: “looking cheerful”.

And my note on sardonic said: “looking not sanguine”.

I had no memory of writing that, but it made me laugh.

It’s like finding a note from the version of you that is asleep and the awake version of you that’s reading the note recognizes that the asleep version of you phrased it just so precisely so the awake version of you would think that it makes perfect sense when you say it like.

Don’t worry, asleep you is also the asshole who gets up in the middle of the night and turns all the alarms off because they need plenty of sleepy time to get all these notes written and distributed around the house for the awake you to find as they panic because they woke up so late.

Asleep starts with A-S and asshole also starts with A-S.

I’m sensing a theme here.

I was telling the Blacksmith, when we met up for coffee yesterday, that my morning workouts really aren’t that bad these days because asleep me does most of the hard part and awake me only shows up during the cool down.

We’ll see how asleep me does at running around the neighborhood.

I might have to tether myself to a giant lighted balloon or something.

It’ll carry a blinking sign that says “DANGER This person has no idea what they are doing. Engage with them at your own risk.”

This morning we have a futbol match.

Other than that, I don’t really have much going on today.

I’m going to attempt to putter around the house doing little jobs that are stacking up.

I’m hoping to get a nap and some reading time in as well.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
