Wednesday’s Word (#22)

Standard

BRH Dino

Today’s word is actually a double-feature: two words that I’ve had on my list for ages that happen to go quite well together!


Cantankerous
/kanˈtaNGk(ə)rəs/
adj. bad-tempered, argumentative, and uncooperative (as defined by the Oxford English Dictionary)

Curmudgeon
/kərˈməjən/
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.
