Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-ic or -ical.” Find a word that uses the suffix “-ic” or “-ical.” Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

Just an aside, but today is a palindrome date: 8.18.18. Cool, huh?

There’s got to be a kazbillion words that end in ic/ical. Sometimes too many choices are less freeing than just a few, like going to the grocery store and finding ten thousand varieties and brands of chocolate ice cream. Which to choose? I may end up buying a carton of orange sherbet rather than make a decision.

So of all the words, of all the choices, my brain came up with: This has been a craptastic week.

I’ve written a few posts about the stress of being micromanaged and my chore for this weekend is to come up with a plan to survive it until it backs off and I don’t lose this job. In this case I do realize, that unlike layoffs and downsizing, if I don’t lighten up it will be me losing this job. That would be catastrophic crapostrophic and I’m not looking for another catastrophe craptastrophe, thank you. (I’m on a roll now…get it? get it?) It boggles my mind why people have to make things so hard! I didn’t think I was a super-duper delicate flower, but after several rounds of unbearable other people one does have to look in the mirror. I don’t have the luxury of being sensitive (or right), damnit, pull the big girl panties on and smile.

Blargh.

I’m not sure if craptastic is an official word, but you can certainly find it hanging about on the web. The first time I heard it, I instantly knew what it meant and found it to be an extremely useful and accurate descriptor. Bonus points for craptastical!

Craptastic! Get the shirt! Get the travel mug! (I really want the travel mug.)

  1. Wow 😮 we are living through similar situations. When you write “I didn’t think I was a super-duper delicate flower, but after several rounds of unbearable other people one does have to look in the mirror. I don’t have the luxury of being sensitive (or right), damnit, pull the big girl panties on and smile“ I could swear you were reading my mind. I swear I’m trying to do this but failing miserably. If I could wear a paper bag out in the world, I would.

  2. When I retired from my 30 year career in health care, I had tons of sick time left that I was not compensated for. Now I wish I’d used more of it for things like massage therapy and mental health days. Best wishes with your survival plan. I hope you rise above the crap and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
