I wasn’t serious.

Tuesday’s Word of the Day was facetious which means, “joking often inappropriately or meant to be funny.” I think “facetious” is one of those things a lot of people aim for but seldom reach. I also think it’s one of those words, much like “ironic,” that people think they know the meaning to, but in reality, don’t. You know, you’ll hear someone make a rude or really disgusting joke, then when people call them out on it, say they were only being facetious, they didn’t really mean it. We like to call those people “Schrodinger’s Asshole,” where the reaction of the people around them determines whether they say it was serious or meant to be funny. Don’t be that person.

Tell me what you think!
