But it wasn’t funny. Sarcasm rarely is. The word sarcasm comes from the ancient Greek word sarkázein, which meant “to tear flesh.” Having said that, sarcasm isn’t cute and there’s no place for it on a date. Most of the time it will be interpreted as bad middos. Rather, pay attention to the joys in your life and to the greatness of people – including yourself!
