Happy Hump day Lovelies…..
For some reason it feels like a Friday but clearly it isn’t, so let’s learn a new word because it’s Wednesday.
Today on #WordSearchSeries, we found Masochist.
This word has been reoccurring in this spanish telenovela I’ve been watching (Can you tell I’m obsessed with Spanish telenovela’s? ). It is titled Los Miserables and a supposed love story where a couple keep hurting each other. In typical Phaytea Style, I looked for spoilers so I already know they finally got married. Isn’t love just beautiful?
Masochist was repeated in last night’s episode and I decided to finally check the meaning.
It means a person who is gratified by pain, degradation that is self-imposed or imposed by others.
A person who finds pleasure in self -denial or submissiveness.
A person with a condition in which sexual or other gratification depends on suffering physical pain or humiliation.
Someone who obtains pleasure from suffering mental or physical pain, punishment or humiliation.
For example: John is a masochist buy he likes to live in denia
I’ll be adding this word into my vocabulary bag and you should to.
For #WonderWednessday, I’m wondering ….how long you can hold a safe grudge for.
Some days ago, a colleague walked into my office and I suddenly remembered he got me upset the previous week.
Instantly, I just decided I was going to have only a formal conversation and not encourage any chit chat.
That’s exactly what i did and he noticed I wasn’t ‘flowing’ with his stories. I had this mischievous smile after he left and my plan worked.
He probabaly might not remember what he did but I got away with being naughty and i felt good about it.
I’m wondering if I’m the only one who gets this naughty *evil grin*. Nothing too serious but I feel the silent treatment comes in handy once in a while.
Do you agree?
