Rambling thoughts on this one, an adjective used in a variety of ways.

According to the Cambridge dictionary, terrible means very unpleasant or serious or of low quality.

I suppose then it’s right to say kids go through the terrible twos (glad I didn’t have any as they may not have seen three) , and when it’s been raining all week, the weather is terrible.
The service from our local doctor’s surgery is definitely terrible, so much so that it has been voted the WORST in the county.
I have suffered some of the most terrible headaches in my working life, some leading to debilitating migraines.
The media is full of terrible news about loss of life, Covid, and family matters. It is also terrible the double standards our government has and the slimeballs that are in charge.
We say we feel terrible when we don’t feel well, or guilty for having put our foot in it by opening our mouths before the brain is in gear.

On a positive note though, some things may have seemed terrible at the time, but have been overcome. I’m thinking breast cancer and I’m still here. That’s not so terrible is it?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
