I just wrote ‘blissfully unaware.’ It made sense. It completed the paragraph. Then I looked at it again and realized that I’m a gods-damned jackass.
If you’re blissfully anything, you are in a state of extreme happiness.
In this case, someone was ‘blissfully unaware’ that another person was about to suicide bomb them from a nearby skyscraper. Reads fine, right?
Think about it.
Are you blissful as you make your way to work in the morning? Are you euphoric, smiling, singing, dancing your way across the street with a big, dumb grin plastered across your face?
‘Blissfully unaware’ should be banned from all books.
