D is For...

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 D.
 
D stands for DERIDE.

I don't know about you, but when something has ticked me off, or is ticking me off, I tend to insult that something. And, as I'm sure you fellow babies know – cuz my readers are so smart – “deride” is another word for insult, usually one that's mocking in tone. Therefore, any variation of that word is fair game for inclusion here!
 
Thanks for your time.

  1. I'm the first comment! *jumping up and down*

    I love the word "deride." It's one of my favorite activities, usually reserved for those who don't get my humor.

  2. Yay, you're first!

    I was worried "deride" wasn't strong enough for my theme...

  3. It fits well. A common response to being angered is to lash out and insults find their way in easily.

    Actually, I don't think I've heard the word deride before.

  6. To deride something is mean - but can be kinda fun. Did I just admit that?? They have to deserve it first, of course...
