Weird Word Wednesday!

Today's weird word is: curmudgeon


bad-tempered, difficult, cantankerous person.

My sentence:

My goal in life is to be that curmudgeon old lady who owns a million cats and yells at kids to stay off her lawn. He he. Actually, I think Candice mentioned in the comments once that she wanted to be that old lady. Candice, if you're reading this, bring it on! We'll have to duke it out with our canes for meanest old lady on the block! ;)

What are you guys up to? Been a curmudgeon lately? Know anyone that is? He he.

*The sentence used does not reflect my real goals in life. It is indeed made up. I will not be a curmudgeon when I'm older. I'll be the cute little old lady who feeds stale cookies and too sour lemonade to people and trap them in my house talking to them for hours on end. Bwah ha ha ha ha!

Curmudgeon. I called my son that the other day. He is 6.

I want to be the weird old lady that sits down next to strangers in restaurants and tells them never to cut their hair (right, Jenn?) and kisses people on the cheek with my bright pink lipstick on. It's going to be awesome! :)

Ruth said...

My grandpa was a curmudgeon. He scared the crap out of me.

Patti said...

I like the word curmudgeony. That's what I tell my kids when they're sitting on the couch doing nothing when I say let's go outside.

Kimberly Krey said...

This was a well needed laugh for me! I esp loved the disclaimer! I'm hoping to be like my grandma who would make rice crispy type treats for everyone on the block using not only rice crispy cereal but a combo of fruity pebbles, cocoa puffs and a splash peanuts. Bless her! :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Kasie West So, in other words, you'll be the "crazy" old lady, Kasie? Will you walk around muttering to yourself with that bright pink lipstick on? (I think I remember that story about that old lady that kissed Jenn. I would have died! Ha ha!)

Melanie Jacobson said...

Oh, I love me a curmudgeon! I've always told Kenny that I won't leave him, but if I do, it'll be for an old man, the more curmudgeonly, the better!

Becky Wallace said...

I want to be just like my 75 year old grandma. She mows her lawn twice each week, shovels her own walks, and has a gym membership. But she will yell at you if a) your dog poops on her lawn or b) if you park your car in front of her house.

Ha! I love curmudgeon! GREAT word!

And hey, tomorrow I'll have up the first of the fight scenes you requested! sorry it took so long . . . working out the bugs in this new program, lol.

The Desert Rocks said...

Good word. Thanks for stopping in at my place.

ali said...

Whoa, hitch-hiking in Africa? A music-loving boy? There's a story in there!

Great interview Shallee and Chantele!

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Read my books; lose ten pounds! Ha ha! I can relate to that! ;)
@Ruth Ha ha, Ruth! That made me laugh out loud! :D
@Patti Ha ha! Can't wait to have my own teenagers! ;)
@Kimberly Krey Yay! I LOVE rice crispy treats! Just stay away from the fruity pebbles. They are of the devil. In other words, I'm not a fan!:P
@Melanie Jacobson Oh my heck, Melanie! You seriously crack me up! Ba ha ha ha!!
@Becky Wallace A gym membership at 75? Your grandma ROCKS!! :D
@ali Thanks for the fight scene, Ali! You are the best! :)
@The Desert Rocks Thanks! ;)
