The Definition of Snarky

* I typed this up last week a couple days before the blizzard hit

Snarky (adj.) Easily irritated or annoyed, irascible, given to making snide comments.
see also Limelette #1

Limelette #1 (proper noun) 15 year old daughter of Lime. Known for tormenting orthodontists, critiquing all authority, and generally fulfilling the 'Mother's curse' (I hope you have one just like you).


Today's example of snarkiness came in her commentary regarding the boneheaded decision of certain school officials to issue a two hour delay for school due to 'snow.' I use the term 'snow' lightly.

It is 5:30 am, the radio DJ has just announced the delay. I tiptoe around to turn off alarm clocks before they wake children because although the children require the auditory equivalent of a jet plane engine coupled with the sheer force of a crane to rouse them from their beds on a normal morning, on a snow day the slightest whisper wakes them. A floorboard creaks underfoot as Limelette#1's room is entered and she wakes. Mr. Lime tells her to go back to sleep because there is a delay. She gets out of bed anyway and looks out of the window and declares...

'They call that snow??!! It's not snowing! It's not even flurries! Gees, it's...I dunno...it's flaking! A flake here, a flake there. For crying out loud, I could go out there and LICK UP all the snow! What idiot called a delay??!!'

  • I just can't believe she got out of bed by choice! Doesn't it figure, you have to drag them out of bed during the school week, then on weekends, they are up at the crack of dawn....
