This is my new expression for “WHY?!” and
all the fist shaking towards the heavens…
that doesn’t achieve much but makes one feel a whole lot better.
“What is this sorcery?” lacks the drama but emphasises the humour in any disappointing event or unsatisfactory situation. I’ll tell you why I used it today.
In a recent blog I wrote about scoring an interview with Spirit Radio that I waited over a week for the call back. No call-back. So being the proactive, go-getter, full-of-confidence person that I pretend to be, I called Darren up and enquired about the job. He actually sounded happy to hear me and said not to worry. He was slammed by the monster month of August and assured me he would call me to let me know about the job.
Good Darren… No, Bad Darren.
Why? Because I liked Spirit Radio on Facebook and two days later what status update did I spy?: “Hello everyone, insert ‘my-opponent-who-got-the- job-and-I-didn’t-name-here, has joined our sales team & he brings his experience and expertise to Spirit Radio and blah blah blah.”
Darren you did not call but let me see the full horror on Facebook. I cried out, “What is this sorcery? Total Dang-It!” My husband replied, “What are you going on about now?” So I calmly interpreted my initial expression into normal people language: “I didn’t score the job with Spirit Radio.” My beloved responded,”Their loss.” Which is a mandatory response in this circumstance. It made me feel loads better. Oh well, pick up despondent expression and solider onto the next job opportunity.
