Why do we called it retired? Shouldn't someone be less tired when they stop working?
Why do we park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?
I imagine by the time I will be able to afford retirement I should be quite tired.
These days I often retire to my shave den for a bit of rejuvenating respite.
I love stranded words in English.
There is no apparent positive root form of this word left in English.
Above was for @Sara-s
I’m so gormless I had to look it up.
Maybe we should make gormful a thing?
Yes, some of us have quite a bit of gorm.
To be "without gorm" sounds like it'd be a good thing.
But, it's not.
Alas, 'tis not.
Oh, yeah! Gorm! He's one of my favorite TV characters. I love it when the light bulb finally comes on!
Disgruntled is another one. Apparently, one can't be gruntled.
And, while paired and repaired are both words, the one is not always a repetition of the other.
I feel gruntled, gusted and sheveled often. Prayer and meditation works.
As does exercise for when I am feeling gruntled.
You mean Disgruntled? Exercise gruntles you and makes you feel better?
Nope.... It just further enhances a good mood as well, but I really like my bike.
