    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.

    Here's one:

    Gormless

    There is no apparent positive root form of this word left in English.

    Maybe we should make gormful a thing?

    Yes, some of us have quite a bit of gorm.

    Gorm.

    Gorm.

    To be "without gorm" sounds like it'd be a good thing.

    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.

    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.
