I was talking to the dogs this morning on our walk. They don’t talk back. I was struck by an idea: Animals are considered “dumb” as in “unable to speak”. Then I reflected on all of the “dumb” things I read this morning while scrolling on fb that wasted my time and energy.
Dumb has come to mean “stupid”. We say and do dumb things, we follow down or ignore dumb ideas. I am dumb to read anything that disturbs my serenity. Glad I know it, and reset.
I am dumbfounded at just how dumb some people can be. I wish the dumb (stupid) were dumb (silent).
