The ass end of things
Ass: the word that we Southerners add to the end of existing words; thereby creating additional words used to intensify a feeling or condition.
In my opinion, it all started with smartass and dumbass…
I myself just did it on a status update. ‘On a rainyass day like today’. Yeah – alrighty then. How about lameass, crazyass, or tiredass. You’ll probably never hear anything like beautifulass or prettyass, though. The mere fact that I woke up today thinking about this is in itself a little disturbing.
It is indeed a rainyass day today. It’s a good steady rain though, and much needed. I just watched a baby bird get pushed out of it’s nest (or fall, not positive of which) and land in the rocks below. After the stun wore off, it got up and ran under K’s daylillies in the flower garden. I’m hoping it’ll be okay and nothing will get it. The little thing’s never been wet, never before felt rain… well, nature can be so cruel at times.
Well, guess I’ll take my lazyass on in the kitchen and make some lunch. It’s been a grand four days off.
