Word of the Week: Mulligrubs


Ooh, I know this one.  It’s like doldrums.

“Depression or low spirits.”

That’s it!  That’s all you have to say?

“I’m feeling very mulligrubs today. My baby plants are not obeying me and growing.”

Maybe it’s because you keep overdosing them on plant food.  Back to mulligrubs, in the 16th century the term megrims basically meant the same thing and picked up popularity.  At least it seems like it in old veterinarian manuals.

“When and why did you start reading veterinarian manuals?”

Besides trying to find a way to make Beagle unable to talk anymore?  I did a megrim search in Google books and most of the books were romance novels, personal journals and veterinarian manuals.

Google Book Search, sounds dangerous.  I think I need a blog break.”

Well, that was an easy way to alter your mulligrubs mood.  My work here is done.
