cur·mudg·eon[ker-muhj-uhn] Show IPA
a bad-tempered, difficult, cantankerous person.
When I looked in the mirror this morning, I thought I saw an old curmudgeon looking back at me, but I was wrong. Or maybe, I wasn't, Some days are better than others and the same can be said for my temper, be it bad or good.
In all of us lies a dormancy of one nature or another; today, I think I'd like to be "the friendly old guy across the street".
I'll work on that.
