I’ve been using the word "snarky" a lot lately, especially to describe certain emails that I was sending and receiving. "Snarktastic" has also been used, but mainly, snarky. You know what I mean – thinly-veiled tension-filled "conversations" wherein a smiley face is used to make the prior inappropriate statement seem lighthearted. I shouldn’t be surprised by this since my world exists in a perpetual state of passive-aggressiveness, and this is that incarnate.
I really wish that people just came out and said what they wanted to. A world where a spade was called a a spade would be so much easier than calling a spade a small hand trowel used to dig holes (and then calling it a jackass behind its back.) I’d love to be a kinder, gentler Aubrey but today, I’m just snarky.
