…that is the question.
I’m so depressed by the TV news. I turn the television on for “companionship.” I bury myself in computer genealogy to escape from Coronavirus “stay at home” life. Many tasks await time and attention but I haven’t the energy—or incentive—to tackle them. I’m a mess!! Sometimes (like today) I don’t get out of my pajamas. Why bother? Today is another cold rainy day and I won’t be going outdoors. Nobody will see me so I’ll stay in warm pajamas, a warm robe, and warm slippers. ~~ Not a pleasant blog message but this is my journal and I’m documenting the “funk” I’m in. ~~~ Question: Why is “funk” associated with negativity? I have an ancestry connection to the “Funk” family (Christian Funk, my fifth-great-grandfather). So I went to Google and looked it up.
If you’re in a funk, it means that you’ve been feeling sad. You might be in a serious funk after your best friend moves across the country. One way to use funk is to mean “blues” or “depression.” Everyone’s in a funk sometimes — for some people, the shorter, darker winter days automatically put them in a bit of a funk.
