Blithe

adj. 1. Happy and without worry.

2. Without due thought or consideration.

(blīth’)

 

“Are you aware the man you’re blithely escorting around our building has a documented history of savage violence against robots?”

“I don’t know what ‘blithely’ means, but I’m gonna go get some coffee.”
-I, Robot

 

From Old English bliþe (kind, cheerful, pleasant), possibly from a root word meaning “to shine.” (That funny letter ‘þ‘ is pronounced ‘th’, by þe way.)

Don’t worry; be blithe.
