I’m bringing you a few more fun words for today’s Wacky Wednesday. See if you can find ways to use these words in regular conversation and mess with your friends. Our first word is one many of you may have heard before. Discombobulate means to confuse, upset, or frustrate someone. Many of you may recall when Robert Downey Jr portrayed Sherlock Holmes (2009) and he used the word a couple of times. It is also the title of one of the compositions from Hans Zimmer for the film. It’s a fun song with violins and harpsichords.
Bumptious is an adjective which means offensively self-assertive or proud. I’m certain we’ve all met someone who was overly bumptious. Most often I’ve seen drunks and young boys like this. It is pronounced in a similar fashion as scrumptious or conscious. Absquatulate is a verb meaning to leave abruptly or to flee or abscond. Imagine a thief running from a place they had robbed. I’ll have more words to share and I’m in search of fun wacky stories to share. If you have any, I hope you’ll share them with me in the comments. Remember to say hello to your local Wild Wacky Inflatable Tube Man.
