Further Defined

Here's a word I could easily guess at incorrectly.  Barmecidal.

It feels like it could be something that you drink at a bar for medicinal purposes.  It might mean you've been standing at the bar so long that you are slowly killing yourself.  It could mean somebody has been sitting in your corner spot at the bar for so long that it is absolutely within reason to consider homicide to reclaim the prized red stools. 
Or at least manslaughter.    

But it probably means you've been at the bar for so long, too long, that your capacity to estimate the amount of cash you actually have in your pocket is highly distorted, which is why it seems like a good idea, at the time, to buy another round of patxaran. Ya falta menos.

  1. Ya falta FFF what happens to the chicasita who arrives five days after the fiesta starts? Well, she'll have to cleverly pull all of the pieces together in her sherlock holmsey way and get the party restarted post ppp crisis. Will there be a barmecidal remedy? Or will there be barmedicinal remedy? To be continued...
