– Special Correspondent Ellen
There are times when excitement is warranted, such a for holidays and birthdays. There are other times when a marked lack of excitement is necessary, such as for months without festivities. For those times, there is only one word that fits the bill. “Meh,” is that word. However, the word alone is not enough. You’ve got to perfect the intonation and facial expression. Your tone should express both your utter disdain – to the extent that you could barely be bothered to even comment. Your face should be nearly immobile, except for a slight scrunching of the nose; as though you think you’ve smelled something bad, but don’t care to inhale any deeper to make sure that there is an actual foul odor. If you need tips, ask Special Correspondent Ellen; she’s got it down to a science.
