Well, here we are again for another Wacky Word Wednesday. This is where I rummage around for a weird, wonderful or wacky word that deserves to have another few minutes in the spotlight. The one that I have chosen today not only sounds great but also has an onomatopoeic quality to it, so you know exactly where you stand.
Gobsmacked. Oh, this is a shocked and surprised word, the kind of reaction to some scandalous shenanigans! Amazed, astounded and utterly astonished, maybe even being rendered speechless! As my nan would have said, “you could have knocked me down with a feather!”
It is being flabberghasted, and floored, dumbstruck and thunderstruck, bowled over and blown away. A bit like I feel when Miss Hap tidies her room without being asked!
