Welcome to the dictionary, oh favorite exclamation of mine.

I can remember the perplexed stares of strangers when I first pulled out the phrase. Then I saw it on TV in a commercial for Discover card.

And now it’s made the dictionary, in the same issue with ‘hangry.’

If only there was a word for what an amazing week this has been….

Oh yeah!

Hangry

Halloween is only five days away.

Better have your candy ready…

‘Cause I’m pretty sure she wants some.

I learned a new word today…or, I should say, new to me:

HANGRY

As soon as I heard the word in conversation with a friend, I Googled it…and realized it was not just a word, but a phenomenon.

Hangry, simply stated, is that spirit-sucking irritability that results from being hungry.  I experienced it today when I had too many errands to run and not enough time to eat.

While I am all-too familiar with the feeling, I had never had the perfect word to describe it.

Until now.

So I am no longer hangry; instead, I’m simply happy.  ‘Cause the right word can do that for ya.
