How are you feeling today? Crapulous or not?

Yes, are you feeling fabulous, Crapulous or somewhere in between?
I don’t know about where you are, but here in Oz Crappy is often used to describe not feeling very well. Now up until September 14th of this year, I had always assumed that crappy, although still not a nice word, was still a more politer form of a not so nice word, with a different original meaning (albeit slightly connected.).
Not so it seems, and feeling “crappy” is really a legitimate abbreviation from the noun crapulous. Yes, according to the word of the day for September 14Th Crapulous means
1. Given to or characterized by gross excess in drinking or eating.
2. Suffering from or due to such excess.
So again how are you feeling today? I am neither fabulous or crapulous. But okay nonetheless. And trust that you are likewise, if not fabulous.
But if you are crapulous today, I hope that you will soon get over it and be well again, and that next time, you will watch you eat and drink, okay?
