Tortuous

Hi Everyone!

Okay, gang here we go down the crooked road to aunt Mabel’s home.

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence, against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Poem by Mother Goose

Can’t get any more crooked than that!

Have a great day! Hope

Dumbledore

Hi Everyone!

Dumbledore – did you know the dumbledore proper is Emerson’s “burly dozing humblebee”? aka “The Humble Bee” In American prose always a “bumblebee”.

Word origin – old English dumble, variant of drumble to move sluggishly + dor humming insect. (drumble-drone)

Here’s my favorite “Dumbledore”.
In case you don’t know this is a picture of Albus Dumbledore of Harry Potter’s movies. On his shoulder is Fawkes, Dumbledore’s faithful feathered friend.

Time to relax. Get your favorite coloring tools out.
Enjoy!

Have a great day! Hope

Befuddle

Everyone!

Have you been befuddled?
Or discombobulated?

Do you get befuddled when a person starts talking, keeps on, keeps on, on, on, etc.
Now this can happen by email, phone, in-person, shopping at the same store, etc, etc, etc.
You can’t even get your opinion in. Then all of a sudden they say to you “what’s your problem today, you don’t want to talk to me?”
Me I just slowly drink a glass of water! Think about walking down a quiet beach, all you hear is the water moving around.
And then I say to them “can you repeat that?”

Or how about when reading one of my blogs, you get a befuddled look and scratch your head, what the heck is Hope blogging about????

Have a great day! Hope

Smitten

 

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever been smitten? For one thing I dragged out my paper dictionary The New Merriam-Webster with a copyright of 1989 to see what smitten is all about.

Are pages yellow you ask? Yes they are!

Here’s the meaning of smite – 1989 doesn’t even have smitten – says to strike heavy, to affect as a heavy blow. Yikes! I thought it meant more like the statements below.

See the source image

Now at Merriam-Webster website it has –
deeply affected with or struck by strong feelings of attraction, affection, or infatuation.

Now The Free Dictionary one definition has –
to afflict or attack with deadly or disastrous effect: smitten by polio.
to affect mentally, morally, or emotionally with a strong and sudden feeling: They were smitten with terror.

to impress favorably; enamor:  he was smitten by her charms

Have you been smitten lately?

Have a great day! Hope
