scha·​den·​freu·​de – enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others

Schadenfreude is a combination of the German nouns Schaden, meaning “damage” or “harm,” and Freude, meaning “joy.” So it makes sense that schadenfreude means joy over some harm or misfortune suffered by another.

I recall a party when Bill asked me to come with him to watch while he paddled Tam. I never asked if it was Bill’s or Tam’s idea to have her paddling witnessed. I suspect it was Bill who was delightfully evil.

This reminds me that I have a sequence of pictures of Sharon being switched outdoors in full view of everyone. I should post them.

At any respectable gathering of Brats one can be sure as many as possible will be thrown under the bus… and a shout out to that lass in the kitchen. She did quite the admirable job of staying in position given the burn a switch can leave ‘behind’.
