Me Facetious?

Blogroll Me!
Many times I have been accused of being facetious. It is one of those words that I sort of knew what it meant, but didn't until I looked it up in the dictionary. I realize that my sarcasm is not always as well received as I intend it to be. My friend Sally tells me that facetious is the only word in the English dictionary that uses all the vowels in their respective order. I wish I didn't memorize that kind of trivia...but I do!

Oscar Wilde: "Sarcasm is the defense of the weak!"

He must have been VERY weak as he was VERY sarcastic.

I love Oscar Wilde. My favorie Wilde quote: "A cynic is one who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing." [In fact, I wrote a blog item about it on the church bulletin board!]

Oscar is one of my descendants on the O'Flaherty side. I finally got around to looking at some of his work recently. I can't wait to see more of his bad ole self!
