U is for Understatement

An understatement is a figure of speech used to intentionally make a situation seem less important than it really is.


Well this should be easy 🙃.

Could Have Been Better

In retrospect, the day could have gone better. The spilled coffee, the heavy rain, the missed train all led to a less than ideal start. Getting laid off was also a bummer. I guess the most inconvenient part, if I had to say, would be finding my wife in bed with my best bud Ray. Yes, things could have gone better today. Now I’ve got these two dead bodies to carry down to the garden and bury. It will be a long night to clean up the mess. But at least I can sleep in tomorrow, I guess.

What do you think? I could have done better, sure, but one needs to leave room for improvement.,

    Definitely an understatement! It sounds like a very bad, awful, terrible, no good horrible day!

  2. Love the pattern with its understated hearts that complement the love-gone-awry element in your story.
