Why is it always so hard to get back into the swing of work-related things after a long holiday weekend? I'm dragging a little bit today. That's not really conducive to everything I have to do. I'm not really tired; not physically, anyway. I wouldn't rather be at home. I'm not philosophically opposed to work. I just feel kind of -- inert. Sort of like a lump of protoplasm, wandering aimlessly through my workload, wondering, "Huh?" It's probably the imminent Blue Moon at work, don't you think?
It's pretty hot and very humid today. We had a strong thunder-buster yesterday afternoon that helped to dissipate some of the humidity, but the effects didn't last long. There may be another one this afternoon; it's looking sort of hit or miss. Yesterday's storm sent the doggie back into her hidey-hole. She's terrified of thunder. I love a good storm myself, though I do have my lightning moments.
It was a deadly holiday weekend around here -- seven people dead in local wrecks. The worst accident was caused by swerving to avoid a deer on the interstate. That's a real problem on all the roads around here.

Well. I am at a loss. Would anyone care to explore the etymology of these Words Gone Wild and perhaps take a crack at defining them?
Boudreaux decided to buy Marie a new car for her birthday. They shopped and shopped. Finally, Marie found one she liked. But before signing thepapers, Marie looked at the car one more time.
Suddenly, she bristled and walked away, saying she didn't want the car. She wouldn't even talk about it.
On the way home, Boudreaux said, "Marie, I thot ya liked dat car. What changed yo mind, cher?"
I don't want any car wit XL on it," Marie answered. "It's bad enuff havin' dat on my underwear!"
