D Is For Discombobulated

Discombobulated by Wilfred E. Sieg III
 For Round 12 of ABC Wednesday I'm presenting a vocabulary word each week that we don't often hear in everyday conversation, accompanied by a short story or verse.  This week ABC Wednesday is all about the letter D, and this is one of my favorite d-words...

dis·com·bob·u·la·ted    

Adjective: confused and upset
Synonyms: addled - disconcerted - shaken - thrown - undone

I recently wrote a story for Two Shoes Tuesday about someone who was discombobulated .  You can read it here...

  2. I have to admit I use that word quite often.
    Actually I used it yesterday when talking about the lady who was chairing a meeting I was attending.

    1. I'm afraid it's light-years ahead of my stick-people artistic talents Ewok! But I know that "disjointed" feeling!

    1. It's another one of those great words that sounds a lot like it's meaning! LOL at Grandma feeling that it suited you! My grandma had a few similar terms of endearment for me. :-)

    1. I worry about the same Leslie, though I suspect more of it is attributed to the pace we try to maintain and all the things swirling about us clamoring for attention! Before long I will need an ID bracelet to remember my own name! :-)

  9. Went to the other post to comment. Nice pairing of a previous post and "discombobulated"; also, the image reminds me of Picasso. Who did it? Please let me know if you visit my post. Peace, Amy
