If you crinkled your mouth or furrowed your brown upon reading that word, you likely look like a curmudgeon! (Better to look like one than to behave like one.) Think of the stereotypical “grumpy old man.” A curmudgeon is a mean-spirited, nasty “buggah!”
And ladies, we do not escape either. The word for a female curmudgeon is termagant. Nope. I’d not heard of that either. Strive to be the opposite in thought, word, and deed, as they say. But if being crabby is “the thing” for someone you love, at least there’s a special day to recognize it. Hmmmm…. Reminding them that the other 364 days are NOT their day, so they should not behave as one. LOL!
