Demoralized

Here's the entry for 'demoralized' from Dictionary.com:

Demoralize


1. to deprive (a person or persons) of spirit, courage, discipline, etc.; destroy the morale of: The continuous barrage demoralized the infantry.

2.
to throw (a person) into disorder or confusion; bewilder: We were so demoralized by that one wrong turn that we were lost for hours.

Isn't that a great word? It also has another definition- to corrupt or undermine the morals of (as in, 'Jack demoralized Weston, resulting in an unauthorized elevator trip'), but that definition doesn't really apply to me today so I left it out.

I will spare you all the gory, whiny details. For today. Tomorrow, you might not be so lucky. Coming Soon: 'Shafted: Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose'. Or not.

This picture looks familiar. It brings back memories of pancakes, undercooked sausage, frozen oj and blown fuses.
