Grumpy sounds better than synonyms like surly, peevish or ill-tempered.
I saw this t-shirt recently. Sometimes I wake up grumpy….but sometimes I let him sleep.
But is grumpy really harmless? Or is it an insidious and contagious viral mood destroyer? Okay, that was an overdramatic attempt to pull you into the blog but a story by writer Eric Adler in the Kansas City Star reports that a growing body of psychological research is bearing out the power one individual’s mood can have on others.
That’s right, my friends. Grumpy people really are contagious!
