Engleza de joi/Flummoxed

Every Thursday comes with a new word.

Only that lately, every Thursday has come in surreptitious* mornings as a scorcher. I am flummoxed.

Flummoxed = confused, so that you do not know what to say or do.

Flummox is also a verb = to confuse somebody so that they do not know what to say or do (not being used in the progressive).

*surreptitious = done secretly or quickly, in the hope that other people will not notice.

As optimism is in the air, let’s feel refreshed by looking at this:

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
