WOW #45

Moping Emoji

I was gonna do the post for this word earlier. I really was. It’s not procrastination. I was in a blue funk.  Even though blue is my favorite color, I just couldn’t seem to find a reason to tell you about


All the interesting words that I could come up with, and I managed to find one that means


The actions or attitude of a person who is sunk in dejection or listless apathy, sulking, brooding, or dejected

I thought that ‘listless’ meant that I wasn’t keeping up with my 2019 A To Z Challenge words, but I found that it just means ‘not interested’ or ‘indifferent.’ I don’t give a damn.

Then I found out that someone had opened a Papa John’s Pizza outlet, right down the hill from me. We really needed one. Within a two-block stretch we only had a Gino’s, Topper’s, Little Caesar’s, Domino’s, and Double-Double. I need a little variety in my life. The Pizza Hut, just up the street, closed some years ago, so I guess it’s karma that the second pizza chain that John started is now here to tingle my taste-buds.


An all-meat pizza with hot sauce, and I’m out of my funk, and back to Funk and Wagnall’s dictionary for my next WOW. See you there.

    How did you ever get by so long without that extra pizza place?

    I have moped with the best of them. But then the nearest pizza is miles away so there’s a logical reason….


  3. Though I am a carnivore, I’d rather have a vegetarian pizza than an all meat one.

      A little mopery can go a long way. Mine’s shunted to a side-track. Tomorrow, I go to a Multi-Cultural Festival. If I survive all the foreign food, I’ll be back on Monday, making fun of Germans, God, and Mad Magazine. Hope to see you there. 🙂
