Have You Never Been Mellow

I was working on this blog entry listening to my IPod when "Have You Never Been Mellow" by Olivia Newton-John came on. I hadn't heard this song in ages and it was one of my favorites back in the 70's. I also can't remember the last time I used the word "mellow" in a sentence.

I looked the definition of "mellow" up on the internet:

1 a of a fruit : tender and sweet because of ripeness b of a wine : well aged and pleasingly mild
2 a : made gentle by age or experience b : rich and full but free from garishness or stridency c : warmed and relaxed by or as if by liquor d : pleasant, agreeable e : laid-back
3 of soil : having a soft and loamy consistency

I hope as I age to be "mellow." Made gentle by age or experience. What an amazing thing to be.

  1. This post reminds me of one of my favorite bits of American slang: "Don't harsh my mellow!"
