With the Passing of Time

\BLUJ\ | verb, chiefly Australia & New Zealand

1 : to avoid work or responsibility
2 : to get something from or live on another by imposing on hospitality or good nature : sponge

*makes mental note of local slang to use when I finally get to New Zealand*

I will soon be bludging but that can’t be helped I suppose.

Calamari wasn’t boring; bludge is boring. Although I suppose that the Wall Street elite and the Bush oil cartel were bludging on the rest of us for eight years. Although it wasn’t necessarily our good nature but our ignorance of how corrupt they were capable of being.

“Most people go on living their everyday life: half frightened, half indifferent, they behold the ghostly tragi-comedy that is being performed on the international stage before the eyes and ears of the world.” ~ Albert Einstein

And sadly, the same can be said of people today. I don’t think we’ve evolved that much over the last sixty years.

Daily words come from Merriam-Webster's word of the day. All rambling comes from my head.
