vs. sludge victim

This week I'm going to do a tragically terrible job at looking up and summarizing a general history or etymology of the daily word prompt, then a quick and sloppy compilation of the current events about the word, or something interesting, or weird facts.

vs. knot particularly

I taught myself how to knit this weekend. Rather, I re-acquainted myself with the process. The last time I knitted I was probably 10 years old.

vs. mystery

Life is a Damn Mystery... Especially if you, like myself, have no idea where it's going or where your purpose lies. 21 Damn Early Days Challenge...
