Sunday Scribblings #243 - Antidote

Sometimes the antidote for all the complex concerns of modern of modern life is a little foolishness. With that in mind:


How can I find
An Antidote
When I don't even know
The Dote?

  4. Yeah! What the heck is a 'dote' anyway?

    Okay, I checked the dictionary:

    dote / doʊt / [doht]
    Also, doat.
    dot·ed, dot·ing,


    –verb (used without object)
    1. to bestow or express excessive love or fondness habitually (usually fol. by on or upon ): They dote on their youngest daughter.

    2. to show a decline of mental faculties, esp. associated with old age.

    –noun
    3. decay of wood.

    So an antidote would be:
    –verb (used without object)
    1. to un-bestow or not express excessive love or fondness habitually (usually fol. by on or upon ): They antidote on their youngest daughter.

    2. to stop showing a decline of mental faculties, esp. associated with old age.

    –noun
    3. stopping the decay of wood.


    Hey, I could use some of that wood antidote stuff!

  7. Is the opposite of 'antidote' 'prodote'?
    I reckon I could do that.
    By the way, I am sure your god prodotes on you too, when she finds the time.
