I say today is Wednesday…

Today at Patricia’s Place it is Wednesday.
It doesn’t matter what the rest of the world says
this is my place and if I want it to be Wednesday so be it.

Today I am linking to
Word for Wednesday

My word is

STUMBLEBUM

noun,
clumsy, incompetent person, derelict, alcoholic,
destitute or down and out person

That’s the official definition, but my gramma and ma
used the word quite often to refer to their husbands.
Neither husband was incompetent, derelict or destitute.
They did however sometimes have a bit too much hooch
and that made them seem a little down and out and definitely clumsy.

When I was a kid I thought it was a term of endearment and maybe it was.
No one seemed angry with the men when they were in stumblebum mode.
In fact, there was a lot of laughter when the stumblebums were being…clumsy.
Now, if stumblebum mode got to the falling down and embarrassing stage,
I’m not saying it ever got to that stage, but if it did that could be a whole ‘nother word.
We’ll just leave it here with stumblebum.

    1. I think it is a fun word, but it doesn’t always have a good meaning it can be a derogatory comment. But I like it as just a fun comment.

  1. I need to remember this meme. I like this word, too. I grew up hearing it, too…along with many words that were somewhat synonymous. But, maybe I shouldn’t use them. Just sayin’.
