Are You Gruntled?

Now and then we come upon a word and we are not sure what it means. My grandpa used to ask me if I was gruntled. No, I would say I am happy. Then he would chuckle and say, it's the same thing. What is gruntled? Well I ask you what does disgruntled mean? We hear it in the news, a disgruntled employee went on a rampage. We all seem to know what disgruntled means. Then why not gruntled being the opposite of disgruntled. Just remove dis and one would assume that the outcome would be happy or gruntled.  Again I ask, are you gruntled?

I am gruntled that you shared this new word with me.  I hope to use it often and spread the gruntle around!

Kathy,

Thanks for your comment, It is fun to play with our language, and yes I am gruntled!

Sharon,

Gruntle on! It is just a funny word, doesn't have a meaning similar to it's sound.
