    humblebrag

    Saw this 'word' used in a Doonesbury sunday comic panel about a month ago

    Examples (Don't have the strip in front of me)

    My genius daughter can be such an airhead
    My Rolls Royce car seems to need repairs so often compared to my Lamborghini
    I just don't know what to do with all my (***)
    My overstocked (***) is such a mess
    I've lost so much weight that now my sister is jealous of me
    etc etc

    The word kind of amused me - it seems so descriptive for comments like those!

    Can you add to the list?

    How about: I'm so lonely. It's hard talking with people who don't have my IQ.

    "My financial advisor says I should take x amount out of my annuity every year - but I don't need it!"

    I'm such a bad quilter, two points in my 6,000 piece quilt are off by a thread.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.
