Now, if only we could get our congress people to aim their sites toward the middle, which seems kinda like what moderation means. Then again, perhaps I should look the word up, make sure I'm even talking about what I'd like to be thinking about.
Yep, I'm spot on. Here ya go, according to Dictionary.com
mod·er·a·tion/ˌmɒd əˈreɪ ʃən/ Show Spelled [mod-uh-rey-shuh n] Show IPA
the quality of being moderate; restraint; avoidance of extremes or excesses; temperance.
the act of moderating.
A few of things I'm thinking about moderating with myself, so that I can become more moderate:
- rest of leftover box of gift chocolate (above brand, "Nuts, chewy and crisp centers" blend--FAVORITE!)
- how long I sit
- yelling at the tv, especially when they're talking about congress (refer to temper)
- emotional eating (refer to food, temper, congress and yelling at TV)
Perhaps later this week I'll talk about LAVISHNESS. But right now, it doesn't seem like a good fit with MODERATION. It just seems more fun. Know what I mean? As in "the lavishness of the rest of the box of the chocolate gift". Which, as you noticed, is my favorite blend.
I think I shall become moderate about moderating tomorrow, my dear, after the last tongue-yumming melted goodness is swallowed. And I am even fatter and more miserable.
Determined again! Seriously determined!
In summation, if you were a betting person, where would you put your money?
