Word of the Day
Nervous Breakdown (noun) -- a condition or state of mental anguish that occurs approximately two years after a seven-month job search's instigation puts your house in foreclosure and you are at a stage where you probably have to file bankruptcy and the banks have been stalling the foreclosure completion for 18 months and your soon-to-be-ex has been stalling the divorce completion for 14 months and your landlord is being sued by the condo association that has just named you in the suit and your landlord has just been foreclosed on by his bank and your doctors decide to do ONE MORE TEST that involves an 18-gauge needle before starting your chemo treatments to relieve the constant pain your lymphoma causes and your pet tortoise dies. THERE! I won't even start on what I found lurking in my credit report, but I'm going to send a member of the mob to the soon-to-be-ex if he ever complies with the courts and discloses his current address like he was supposed to do...oh...14 months ago. SOB. And that's your word of the day from a writer's life!

Word in a Sentence: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender is scheduling her nervous breakdown for later this afternoon.

Your turn! Can you use it in a sentence? Create something to make me laugh today. I beg you.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
