Weltschmerz? Yes, Weltschmerz.

My body has had happier moments.

My grandmother used to say she felt kind of “Meh” and was suffering a malaise of one sort or another. I swear, that woman used to just point to a word in the dictionary and say to herself “I think I’ll use this word as often as I can for the rest of my life.” And she would.

Today, it’s my turn to use a similar word that I just found in the dictionary and that is similar to malaise. I’m feeling a bit “Meh” and saturated with Weltschmerz. I’m tired after 7 hours of sleep and I have a headache for the 14th day in a row. Is this a new seasonal thing…? Maybe I have a brain tumor… Maybe I need to start taking afternoon naps…Do I have the Coronavirus? EW! I sure HOPE not. Not sure how I would have picked that up – I rarely go anywhere public except outside, and I always wear a mask when I do. Hm. Maybe my body is just warping into the age of 51 and it’s getting creaky? Is this NORMAL?! Auurrgghh! I don’t know! I’ve never been 51 before.

I suppose it’s worth checking out.

Well. My kittens are happy and my coffee is hot, so I can’t bitch and moan too much – especially if I don’t check out what my body is up to.
