S coined a new word yesterday: Awesomistic.
We have been studying Sword Fighting. In our daily review yesterday S was asked one of the questions, “What will you do when you are tempted to be pessimistic?”
His reply involved a mispronunciation, probably combining the intended word optimistic with pessimistic. “I will be awesomistic because it is written: ‘All things work together for good…’”
Optimistic – Expecting a favorable outcome
Awesomistic – Expecting the very best outcome
Even though it was 102.7° yesterday, the children were awesomistic they would find a way to keep cool.
Even though this was not one of the kids’ lifelike toys that was found in the utility room yesterday. I am awesomistic that it took care of any bugs that happened to be out there. I’m also grateful that I was not the one who discovered it, that it is harmless, and especially that it is now living happily in the flowerbed outside.
We discovered we had no water right before going to bed last night. The man did a cursory examination of the well house and couldn’t discover a solution. He decided whatever it was could wait until the morning light. I was awesomistic that…that…that…
This morning the man cleaned some dead ants out from around the switch on the well. We have water again. Another happy ending.
