I'm trying to figure out a way to use the word "perfidious" in a blog post

I'm one of those people who love words in general, but there are certain words that are particularly high on my list.

One of those is "perfidious." It's used to describe someone who is disloyal or treacherous. If you do something that demonstrates perfidiousness, you can be said to have performed "perfidy."

These are wonderful, delicious words.

Yet this is not a blog that lends itself to perfidy of any kind, unless you count my children's habit of leaving crumbs on the kitchen counter and not closing cupboard doors the way they're supposed to, in which case, yes, they can accurately be described as perfidious.

Or the times when they're told to keep the door to the kitchen bathroom closed because Fred's special cat food for his urinary tract problems is in there and his brother George, among others, will tip over the container in an effort to eat this expensive food, and they fail to follow even that simple instruction.

That's pretty perfidious.

Speaking of the cats, any time they poop or pee in a spot other than their litter boxes and I have to clean it up, "perfidious" is probably the gentlest word I use to describe them.

Now that I think about it, there seems to be an abundance of perfidy happening all around me every day.

I will be sure to report it here on the blog regularly.

And you can bet that, when I do, I will most certainly use the P-word.
