mwef tuth slush

I’ve gotta stop with these morning updates. I need to eat a hearty breakfast, as lunch doesn’t come until 2:00 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Today’s precipitation is a mix of rain, snow and mushy hail, that falls sideways and fills your windward ear with slush.

College needs more words to describe groupings of the days of the week. Weekdays and weekends are fine for the business world, but students live in different universes depending on the Monday/Tuesday modifier. We could call the three-day group ‘mwef’ and the two-day ‘tuth’. Both not nearly as beautiful as quirl, but sometimes ugly words rise up to fill a needed space, and there’s no time to be discerning in judgement.
