Friday Bugbear

A bugbear is derived from a Middle English word

A bugbear is derived from a Middle English word “bugge” (a frightening thing), but these days the term bugbear serves as a metaphor for something which is annoying!

Something quite ridiculous and irrelevant given the refugee crisis but sometimes in the midst of horridness I think silly bugbears still need to be aired. Even the ones I don’t know why they annoy me so much, but this one certainly has this week. You see its those boots of mine that have suddenly become squeaky.

I mean why?!

They’ve been fine for the first 2 years of their life, been well looked after with regular polishes and were re-heeled a few months ago so they have nothing to complain about. Suddenly though this week the left one has decided to squeak.

Squeak!
