- n. a bad-tempered or surly person (as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary)
The prescription medication I’ve been taking to make my mosquito/spider/whatever-horrible-bug bites less itchy [which so far hasn’t really worked as well as one would hope] is a steroid. It’s making me a bit grumpier than normal.
While I may currently be a curmudgeon, I hope that my cantankerous attitude doesn’t stick around too long.
