Little things bother me.
Like a fly buzzing around the room. That really bothers me. Or water dripping. That constant plink, plink, plink. It's SO irritating. Or the people next door, blasting jazz. That makes irritation more of a slow smolder.
What do you do when something is driving you crazy? I do one of several things. I either: 1.) Go to Pinterest or Amazon (or both) and browse for awhile, 2.) Browse Google Images for my (current) favourite movie actors, or shows, or 3.) Look up weird and random facts, words, or slides of LOLcats.
I looked up LOLcats. I liked these best:
Afterward, I looked up the word of today. It's abstergent (ab-STUR-juhnt)
As an adjective;
As a noun:
1. A cleansing agent, as a detergent or soap.
It comes from the Latin word abstergēre, which means "to wipe off."
So, there you go. Maybe after you crawl under the sink to fix whatever's causing the tap to drip, break your pipe, flood your house, and call a real plumber, you might want to call forth your abstergent nature and take a shower. Good luck.
