Ordinary

Ordinary, adj. Common; customary. In the Southwestern States of the Union it is pronounced ornery and means ugly-a striking testimony to the prevalance of the disagreeable.

2005 Update: Widely attributed, as nobility among the dead and celebrity among the living.

Ordinary: Plain Jane who works at an average job serving everyday people with their usual, run-of-the-mill routines. When her unremarkable day is done, she goes home to her typical home in a nondescript neighborhood to eat a standard meal.

Ordinary: Something I never want my life to be. It's also the type of guys who want to marry nowadays :(

Tan Lucy, you're right but also something most everyone wants to be. Especially when we feel freaky.

Aw, Sar.

Haha, Karma. That's a pun worth making.

Dddragon, I don't know anyone like that.

Marwa, you needn't worry.

Pia, I wouldn't know you either.

highly underrated

AP3 said...

Another earworm for you:

"Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair,
Wraps a towel around her
As she’s heading for the bedroom chair,
It’s just another day.
Slipping into stockings,
Stepping into shoes,
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat.
It’s just another day."

ordinary-a life of complacence, ie suburbia

Doug said...

You're right Icy, nothing more aberrant than normalcy. Good girl!

a4g, very Hamiltonian.

Karma, I met you before you met me. Who you kidding?

Sreekesh, I agree and much too rare.

Aral, good earworm. Paul McCartney and wings. I think he still ate some meat back then.

Masil, we really need to find you that apartment, don't we?

PS Doug...how is a fellow supposed to drunkenly leave a comment with that word verification? It's like having to walk a straight line for the cop...

Doug said...

Dddragon, I'm gonna hold a grudge about this. Very ordinary of you :p

Monika, when you live in Iceland the extraordinary must be average.

Ha, Gabriel, sorry. Remind me in the morning to take that off until the spammers return.

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

Hummmm

Sorry I am always late now that I am back in school and I hate being last because ...I just do.

Ordinary- I don't even know ordinary. Thank God for that.
