Such a Self-piteous Start to Her Saturday

Made-up Word of the Day: Self-piteous.

Defined: A belief system that that goes something like this: “Nobody loves me, it’s not fair, and it ain’t never gettin’ no better, and this stinkin’ day is going to last for and ever.”

Here's the letter "s" in sign language...snapped a shot mid-snuggle

For example: So, it’s Saturday. She woke in a Surly and Self-piteous State. Hand to forehead, She Sneeked a peek at just one of her aSsignmentS.

So tempted to Slump into Said Self-piteous Situation, She firSt made a place Setting at the table in hope for Several Sumptous seconds of Sendentary Salve.

“So it goeS” She Said with a Smirk.
