duet for one please...
Todays' word is chagrin.
- a feeling of vexation, marked by disappointment or humiliation
- to vex by disappointment or humiliation
To use the word chagrin in a sentence (or two) -> At my job i get asked multiple times a night to join a party of servers/hosts to serenade one lucky individual in a delightful round of "happy birthday"... on this particular night no one was available to join in the sing-along and to my utmost chagrin a duet was inevitable... Nicole and i were left to sing alone, and to make matters worse the table of fellow well-wishers came not to our aid, offering none of their vocal assistance! needless to say i walked away as red as a lobster and deeply flustered! note to all: please sing "happy birthday" when in a restaurant so as not to leave the servers hanging!
p.p.s this is supposed to be February 3rds post... already tardy... i know. slapping wrist.
