Here's the thing, I have been some kind of Snarky recently.
Really, beyond Snarky.
I've been bordline B-word.
But I just love that word Snarky.
Do you know what that word means?
Well, I will tell you,
actually Urban dictionary will tell you.
Any language that contains quips(what's a quip?)
or comments containing
sarcastic or satirical witticisms intended as blunt irony.
Usually delivered in a manner that is somewhat abrupt
and out of context and intended to stun and amuse.
Last night, I was even shocked by the comments that were rolling off my tongue and onto a platter of garbage, so I thought ya know I need a "check up, from the neck up." I headed out the door with two kids in tow. I dropped them off to a youth event at church and I proceeded onto Choir practice, where I thought surely worshiping Jesus will change this Snarky behavior right around.
So then I thought well, maybe I just need some junk food? Who will be my witness that sometimes what we eat really helps our overall attitude and mental well being? Anyone? Come on people don't leave me hanging! I went to Jack in the Box and got my "Go To" favorite junk food of all time, Jalapeno Poppers. I gobbled them up lickidy split and drank some Diet Dr. Pepper and still nothing. In fact at this point I started to get a belly ache, which only encourages a Snarky tude.
After picking up two happy youthz(New Girl fans quote for ya) I decided that the only hope to rid myself of my Snarky behavior was just to go to bed early. I got home, got kids all settled in and went pretty much straight to bed.
And do you know what?
I woke this morning feeling better.
I felt renewed.
I felt refreshed.
I felt like the Snark had been lifted.(At least until next month ;) wink wink)
