Some people may call me too obtuse….

Some people may call me too obtuse, but I don’t care. Give me the serenity of a cool brook and a warm day, and I’m as content as I’d ever want to be.

obtuse \ uhb-TOOS \ , adjective;
1. Not quick or alert in perception, feeling, or intellect.
2. Not sharp, acute, or pointed; blunt in form.
3. (Of a leaf, petal, etc.) rounded at the extremity.
4. Indistinctly felt or perceived, as pain or sound.

Origin: Obtuse comes from the Latin word tundere which meant “to beat” and the prefix ob- meaning “against” because it referred to the process of beating metal until it was dull.
