A.Word.A.Day

April 22nd, 2008

suspire (suh-SPYR) verb tr., intr.

To breathe; to sigh.

[From Latin suspirare (to breathe up), from spirare (to breathe).]

(Thanks, Anu.)

I don’t really like being wide awake at 3:30 a.m., the cat pressing on my leg, a kid snoring in my ear. I like my kid — I like both of ‘em, thank God — and I like my cats — all three of them, but at 3:30 a.m.? What I really like is sleep.

I’m running the dishwasher (finally), blogging, catching up on work e-mails. Yeah, baby.

You?

    I like to sleep at 3:30 in the morning too. And I like to breathe, particularly while I’m sleeping, instead of getting smooshed from the inside due to a growing baby. But I like not having my 17 pound kitty smooshing my ribcage most of all.

    Sleep is always a good thing at 3:30 in the morning!
