This month I'm participating in the A-Z Challenge. (For more information, click here.) My theme is Anger MISmanagement. I'll be posting almost every day in April, skipping only Sundays. Let's see how I do!
Today's letter is B.
B stands for BALLISTIC.
Ballistic's true, original definition is “of or relating to ballistics or to a body in motion according to the laws of ballistics.” Not sure when it was also made into a slang word for going absolutely overboard when reacting angrily toward something. Not sure it matters, either. If you're in the path of someone who's going ballistic, who the hell cares about etymology? Get out of his (or her) way!
Thanks for your time.
