Monday Melee 2/26

meleesmall.jpgThe Monday Melee is a Fracas project. You’re invited to participate. Get details and see the participant list here.

The Misanthropic: Name something you absolutely hate.
War. Time and again, diplomacy fails (or is never attempted) and war erupts, blazing a trail of destruction, violence, and death. Why must we resort to killing each other?

The Meretricious: Expose something or someone that’s phony, fraudulent, or bogus.
At the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, political appointees, not researchers and scientists, have the last word on standards recommendations for air pollutants.

The Malcontent: Name something you’re unhappy with.
I am highly distressed by the situation in the Middle East.

The Meritorious: Give someone credit for something and name it if you can.
During a recent school-sponsored food drive, a student asked for canned goods as her only birthday presents so that she could donate them.

The Mirror: See something good about yourself and name it.
I am creative and resourceful.

The Make-Believe: Name something you wish for.
I’d like to be able to successfully divide my attention between two tasks; for example, read a book while having an interesting conversation. Multi-tasking on steroids.

    Yes, fracas, they certainly do. We just need more kids like this and things will turn out okay.

    Bice, thank you for the compliment, and plan on me continuing to frequent your blog. I wish I had your wit and style.
