Dolly Rant: "Cringy"

I am in the ranting mood today, and "cringy" is my victim. Cringy is such a ridiculous word that spellcheck doesn't even get it. All I see is the word and angry red squiggly line. 

Cringy is the new word to describe anything that will make you cringe. I guess Buzzfeed was bored  with typing out the tiresome "cringe worthy", so they shortened it to the meaningless "cringy". What the heck does cringy even mean? As a derivative from the word cringe, I get it, but as a new word, it is meaningless.

The long and the short of it is these stupid, inane words have no purpose and no place in our vocabularies. Does anyone remember the annoying '90's phrase "whatev". Do you see what I mean.

15 Years Later....

My deepest sympathy and sadness goes out to all those families who lost loved ones on that horrible day of September 11, 2001. I was only a very small child when that happened, but even so, that event has been permanently ingrained into who I am as a person. September 11 will never be a late summer's day, but a day of great horror, but also of unity. That day, we said together as a nation that we would pull together and defend those we love and avenge those whom we lost.

One thing I can promise you is that I will never ever forget those that we lost.
