1. To grow dark, gloomy, etc.
There has been a lot of darkling going on in Western North Carolina as of late. The bottom four inches of my pants stay soaked. But the worst thing about the darkling is the morning. The mornings that feel like they are the middle of the night. The alarm goes off and immediately I think of what I can do without to stay in bed minutes longer. Do I really need to wash my hair? Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day?
