of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
I think the most fun words come from being confused. The word bumfuzzled (bum-fuzz-uld) expresses just that—being confused. It is derived from an equally funny word—dumfoozle. No, I am not making these words up. They sound like exactly what they mean.
Never be bumfuzzled again by the word bumfuzzle. But, do feel free to bumfuzzle others by using the word bumfuzzle.
Go ahead, give it a go.
"Mother and father, I am bumfuzzled by the sudden increase in the price of gasoline. Would you explain it to me?"
"Teacher, I found myself bumfuzzled by last night's homework. Would you explain it to me in a less bumfuzzling way?"
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
