The word of the day is:

DEMONSTRATIVE. ¬†Actually, just ‘demonstrative’. ¬†People should never use all-caps for emphasis unless they are really angry and writing hard onto an actual piece of paper and then doing what I do which is to scribble in angry circles all over the all-cap after I’ve written it real big, then throwing it in the fire and giggling.

What it means, according to some dictionary anyway, is:

de·mon·stra·tive  (d-mnstr-tv)
adj.

1. Serving to manifest or prove.
2. Involving or characterized by demonstration.
3. Given to or marked by the open expression of emotion: an affectionate and demonstrative family.
4. Grammar Specifying or singling out the person or thing referred to: the demonstrative pronouns these and that

I’m vowing to be more demonstrative in the 3rd definition’s sense. ¬†With (old, old) age, I have learned to internalize because if you choose not to, you’re seen as vulnerable or ‘nuts’ as I like to call you. ¬†We’re here for about 80 years tops, this less physical generation, and it’s clear that we are nuts. ¬†As long as we’re somewhat civil about it, let’s just get it all out and see what happens.

Also, because I’m so deep, I will takes steps to be demonstrative as defined first above. ¬†Why not? ¬†Can’t work for SCHOE Industries forever. ¬†Anyone who guesses the definition of that acronym gets a store-bought Christmas cookie for their troubles.

Drink a smoothie!

About Nikki

I've been writing since I was in kindergarten where I Crayola-markered an epic tale of a tiger and a balloon on a stack of lined papers folded into a booklet and stapled along the edge (carefully, and by my teacher). I love DIY, sewing, folksy music, animals and getting out to look at and listen to nature.
