Anyone who truly knows me knows that I have an abiding love for dark chocolate. And words.
In my nerdy heart of hearts, I love words. Mostly because of the power they have to evoke an emotion or convey a thought. And partly because some of them are just plain fun to say.
Like the word “frivolity”, for instance. It’s not a commonly used word in our vernacular (another word I love). Wikipedia tells me that frivolity means: “lack of seriousness; lightheartedness”. Methinks this is an important word given the current state of affairs in our world. I am choosing not to expand upon that last line. Today is Friday and frivolity is the word of this day for me.
The other night, I received a message from my piece of dark chocolate. It implored me to buy something frivolous.
So this is what I bought on my Target run yesterday, because when chocolate speaks I listen.
As a means to maintain my current state of frivolity, I told Hubs that we are playing Mad Libs on our plane ride to Washington, D.C. this week. I cannot fathom a more frivolously fun activity to engage in while I am sipping Chardonnay in a plastic cup 35,000 feet up in the clouds.
Maybe my frivolous spirit will continue into the week and I’ll be able to take a selfie with this dude:
We shall see.
Happy Frivolous Friday, my friends!
