Ooookayyy Ab,

I realize our physiological make up includes various levels of both est. and test.. I was merely suggesting I had subconsciously acted to flush the larger concentrations from my immediate area…for awhile. But, maybe not. Could just be my own sardonic grasp at faulty logic.

Source: Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) Sardonic \Sar*don”ic\, a. [F. sardonique, L. sardonius, Gr. ?,
?, perhaps fr. ? to grin like a dog, or from a certain plant
of Sardinia, Gr. ?, which was said to screw up the face of
the eater.]
Forced; unnatural; insincere; hence, derisive, mocking,
malignant, or bitterly sarcastic; — applied only to a laugh,
smile, or some facial semblance of gayety.

Where strained, sardonic smiles are glozing still, And
grief is forced to laugh against her will. –Sir H.
Wotton.

The scornful, ferocious, sardonic grin of a bloody
ruffian. –Burke.
Here’s to learning a word a day…”Sardonic”

Ciao,
Fire Momma

Haw Haw – nice save, Ruffian.
