Thunk for the day

'Nonplussed'? What kind of a word is that, anyway? How is it possible for someone to be 'nonplussed' if they can't be 'plussed?' Tell me that!

That is a problem that leaves me absolutely - well, not 'nonplussed', but 'completely puzzled', and 'in a state of utter perplexity.'

Your post gruntles me.

I'm relatively combobulated about the matter.

So pleased at the gruntlement and combobulation... much better than being whelmed or underjoyed, I reckon.

Your post made me feel better, I am now tressed.

And my hair grew back.

Non-plussed? If the equal and opposite reaction to that is sub-tracted, then that would equal incontrovertable dis-traction.

TimT said...

Just an added at-traction to this tract...?

my position is intractable

TimT said...

Not going down that track. It's a tract that can't be tracked.
