365 Challenge: Day 337 – Flounce

Posted on

Flounce: go or move in an exaggeratedly impatient or angry manner

flounce

I previously heard the word flounce, but I really hadn’t used it in anything I said or wrote. It appeared in my head this morning when I was trying to describe my mood or emotions, as I immediately thought of those cute street marketing ploys in the pictures. It made me laugh. I often feel like I need to flounce… not from anger or impatience, but just because it might be a good way to shake loose that unsettled feeling or confusion over something. Maybe we should have a national flounce day! Who’s with me?

 

About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.

    This is a huge undertaking, one few would attempt. You are putting out a lot of information and giving promotion for others as well. A selfless commitment. Thank you.

    A great word, flounce. I am very flouncy because I am either extremely happy or extremely annoyed. There is no middle ground.

    Flounce is a great word, very dramatic and visual. Whenever I read it in a book, I can always picture the person bounding out of the room with their hair bounding after them. I always picture somebody with curly hair for some reason.

      That’s astute… curly hair makes sense! How are you doing? I recall it being a rough end of year for you….

      Totally true! I’m watching Dr. Thorne on Amazon Prime video and that is probably where it came from!

    You haven’t seen flouncing since you’ve seen a 73 year old, white-headed lady do it! I have a dress with a flounce at the hem, which I love. I called it my kicky hem/dress. My elderly friend called it my “floozy dress.” LOL

    When I was s kid and being dramatic my mom used to say that I flounced around. I can not remember using it though. It is kind of fun sounding though.
