Word For The Day, Day, Date
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

Prone to outbursts of temper; easily angered. 2.Characterized by or resulting from anger. 3: quickly aroused to anger; "a hotheaded commander" [syn: choleric, hotheaded, hot-tempered, quick-tempered, short, short-tempered] 4: characterized by anger; "a choleric outburst"; "an irascible response" [syn: choleric]

Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
She just called-I'm off to bring them through the maze of roads...
Relax, take a deep breath. I am sure they were just anxious to see you again. All will be fine.
Aren't you glad you wound up with the one in the family who has good sense instead of someone like your SIL? That's me, trying to find your silver lining in the dreaded family visit. Isn't it bizarre how they see us as the local Marriott, there to cater to their every whim and then they'll say something like, "well we didn't take a real vacation - we just went to visit family" and then you want to smack them.
I was plenty irascible for a few seconds when I saw what I'd wrought, but after that I was too busy laughing at myself to be bugged by any ribbing.
She should be so lucky...
I am exceedingly irascible today, though surprisingly, not due to any political upheavals, liberal outpourings, nor tinfoilhatted law proposals. Gwmoore simply had a bad weekend (LOL).
My Irascibility began with the malfunction of my brand new radio control computer, which I discovered, had no sound card output, and gwmoore was forced to lug same back to the 'puter store this AM... gwmoore's irascibility was further stoked by the fuel of having to deal with "late 20's early '30's total computer geek" who was NOT interested in the aforementioned gwmoore's credentials, nor the USE to which he was putting the "custom designed" computer. Yes, it's fixed (I guess) but said geek was on phone to gwmoore approx 1845 (store closes at 1900) tells gwmoore "jumpers were misconfigured" and hangs in silence, as if the writer did something obscene. I informed geek that " that's the way it was, etc etc and made attempt to explain 'puters use and why 2 sound cards are needed calling one "primary" and one "secondary". Geek states "there aren't any "primary and secondary sound, uh, uh sir (had real problem with sir), they are just sound cards". Gwmoore refrained from reading riot act, threatening Capt's mast, quoting CV and resume to geek, teeth were gritted, thoughts of gratuitous violence were entertained, and promptly discarded ;-)....... ^^%%$$%%##^&&&***(((( Geeks!!!!!! Doesn't he KNOW he's talking to an ENGINEER!!!!! (well, you get the picture LOL)..
Ok, I am calming down, and it IS a great computer store, but I wanted to grill said geek about his political leanings and his screen name and tagline at DU, but also refrained, neither time, place, nor correct behavior ;-) Anyhow, is it any wonder that I am irascible???? I think not!!
Second reason for irascibility. The "cold [allergy?] from hell" has descended upon my entire being. Since I feel crummy, I will behave as irascible as I desire in the classroom today, thank you.. I will take cold medicine and become "stuned", as if with a "beeber like device".. I will cause disruptions with my irascibility.... I will also close out now, and quit babbling on and on and on ROTFL.......
Greg (so irascible, he could chew through solid concrete)
my fave part LOL!!!
dang, i better give you a grade or you might bite MY head off!! A++++! ; )
I did, however, behave like a gennulman, and didn't haul geek over coals, apply hot pokers, flush his 'puter texts down toilets, etc etc, while asking " Are You Now, Or Ever Have Been, A Member of DU???? The Communist Party? Al Queida? the Democratic Party? The Brady Organization?" ROTFLMAO!!!
I m glad you enjoyed it..... tnx fer the grade, teach ;_ I'll try not to be irascible tomorrow, show up for class on time, and participate in the group discussion, instead of cutting class and going shooting, which I wanted to do LOL (I don't think this "cold" is gonna clear up, and my eyes have what feels like sandpaper under the lids, with the expected result...No way is shooting possible if ya can't see ;-)..
Of course, my wife might have a different take...LOL.
i am ready to burst a vein over the *(^(*^% RINOS reaching a compromise on the filibuster!
If the RNSC thinks it will get a penny from me they are insane.
Chaffee and Snowe should lose in 2006. If DeWine signed on for this than I am voting against him and recommending it to all my friends.
Who all signed this thing? Did that little closet case from South Carolina sign it?
I think that they are an irascible lot.
Ruck the fINO's
i think warner did and yeah i think the closet case did also.
That totally ruined my day.
Good Grief - I wish you luck, FRiend - and lots of patience.
