smug·ness noun

While I certainly agree with the third definition, as that is in fact the very way that my gym partner ThePGHA and I use it, I would like to humbly offer a fourth option:

Which I observed this morning while running at the reservoir. After going to the gym. At 6:30am. On my day off. What’s that lovely word Sheldon uses? Oh, right.


Synonymous with smug.

  1. Hating you full time as I sit here ALONE trying to spread out my tasks for the long three days ahead. But enjoy your week ;-)

  2. I’m actually more impressed with the fact that you have gone to the gym AND gone running than I am with the sun shot – although it is gorgeous. So, are you off all week?
