Out of Sorts


Has anyone else had a day where you just felt blah?  Out of sorts for no specific reason?  Of course!  We all go through that. 

So I decided to look up where the word "blah" came from.  Nothing interesting.  Then I looked up "the blues" for which most of the definitions had to do with music.  No surprise there.

Then I looked up "out of sorts" and found that to be quite interesting.  It means that we are feeling"off," not ourselves, and can refer to physical or emotional discomfort. 

The origin goes back to 17th century typesetting.  The word "sorts" was used to refer to a set of letters used in printing, so when one was missing, the set was "out of sorts."  I learned something new today, even if I am feeling a bit blah and ho-hum.

How about something funny to lighten the mood?

Sophisticated Cat!
