"Mugged" SOLD

It’s no wonder the English language is said to be one of the most difficult to learn. Take the word mug for instance. According to the dictionary it can be a cup to hold something or it can be a human face. And if you ad an “ed” to it, it can become, of all things….. an act of violence! Now call me crazy, but I don’t quite follow the dots on that one. Which leads me to quit, quiet, and quite–a whole (hole) other dilemma ……suddenly painting seems like child’s play.
By the way, I chose to ad another meaning to the mug word. I figure if things can be bottled, wrapped, and sacked—then this rose can be mugged.
Too much heavy thinking–must stop before I get a headache.
Also, have been reading some great books lately. Picked up a new term I love. Ever have those days that you just avoid everything and feel guilty for doing so?? Yep, there’s a word for it. Multi-shirking. As opposed to those great days of multi-tasking and feeling so in control. It’s all about balance. Somedays I am a multi-tasker and other days….a multi-shirker. I at least feel better now that I know the name for it…….

    You and I had the same kind of day. Sitting in a Situational Leadership training session, my co-worker and I looked at each other and wondered if one of the levels was to be disillusioned about your job, is it better to be illusioned about work? I am pretty sure that they would not use the word if they realized what it really means. Also – you can be overwhelmed and underwhelmed, but chan you just be whelmed?

    Love the rose! It looks like it is ready to be pinned to a lapel!

    PS – you can be whelmed, but you’d drown. not a good state to be in!ReplyCancel
