Work + Late Nights = Made up Words


Tuesday evening last week I had to work late and on my way home, thankfully when it wasn't terribly windy or rainy, I was thinking about different things and I randomly combined two words together and created a new one. The word that I came up with is: Snarkastic.

As you are probably wondering. Why would anyone want to combine the words snarky and sarcastic? Well people combine words all the time and create new ones and that is what I did. I also did it because I can be a bit sarcastic and snarky around my family.

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I had to work late and my brain is always going in multiple directions, which is how I came to making up a new word. It was also a way to help me stay awake while I drove the few minutes home. Even though I made it up over a week ago, I sort of forgot about it and never came up with a definition for it. Though I'm not entirely sure how you would create a definition for snarkastic.

So that is the story of how I created a new word while driving home from work late at night. I hope that you enjoyed reading this post and stay around for more.
