I finally started working on my very first book and I’m excited about it. Just to keep the element of surprise, I won’t tell you the title just yet, however I will share some of the content.
A few years ago when I asked a dear friend if he considered me a ‘bitch’ and he responded in his usually charming voice. “Nah, I think you’re Snarky…but not a bitch”. Hmmm, Snarky…I had to look that up.
A witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude.
Well, yeah that sounds about like me!!! Shux just ask anybody, I’m down right snark-a-licious! Now I know most folks would have been offended by the label, but I actually found it to be endearing. Especially since it was true.
It was about that time that I got downright thankful!! It was one of those moments when you realize that you are loved in spite of yourself!!! It was a complete moment of EMOTIONAL NUDITY. Gotta love it!!
Sometimes we give labels too much power to hurt us or damage our self image. A label can only be damaging when we internalize it as something negative. In this case I didn’t!! In fact I embraced it. Part of living a life of Emotional Nudity is owning your crap and leaving the rest for everyone else.
As for me, I plan to continue being my wonderfully SNARKALICIOUS self.
Snarkalicious – A particularly snide brand of humor that that encompasses sarcasm, cynicism and ridicule. Usually exercised by women.
