Wacky for ABC Wednesday




Thanks, Bre, for the word suggestion!

I've reached the age where the world looks wacky. When I was younger and heard 'elders' speak of the wackiness that surrounded us, it seemed to me that what was happening was 'normal'.

But now, crazed is the synonym I'd choose for this current phase of wacky. You're welcome to write it for Wikipedia it if you wish as that site has no specific definition.

At which age does wackiness veer from normal to weird?

Roger is right, 37. Wacky is as wacky does and I am, have been, will be! Great post for the W Day! I love it!

I like wacky; that is, my sort of wacky. Anyone else's kind of wacky is just weird.

T'was ever thus.

Wacky....I like to think of it as exceptionally (in a good way)eccentric!

Thought-provoking and true... our world has become a wi-fi wonder!

Wacky isn't worrisome, its more wild and eccentric to me.

Paula Scott said...

I like wacky.
And, I ALWAYS, always forge to use Weds for ABC Weds when we get to "W". Now, that weird and wacky.

I often felt to be wacky, but I discovered that most people I know are wacky, though different. So it is not important as long as you accept the wackiness of others. Is wackiness an existing English word? If not, I declare it to be a good English word invented by a Dutch woman.

Wacky is being 80 and feeling 18!!!! Your illustration looks like my gas mask; I featured one on Mellow Yellow Monday this week!

I think each generation gets wackier as I get older, now my generation was no where near wacky, we were the wonder kids of the world. But, never Wacky.

nonizamboni said...

I'm sure there some sort of mathematical formula for the ratio of normal to weird; a wack scale, if you will! :O)
Beautiful illustration. Its always fun to see what you come up with.

Joy said...

Its a weird and wacky world, but never dull. Maybe there should be a wackyometer to measure it.

Wacky indeed!

Would love you to peek at my ABC. You are welcome to come by anytime, have a nice day!

Perhaps wacky becomes weird when one no longer has the energy or inclination to join in;-)

Q said...

I agree with Roger...37!
So good to read your posts.
I missed home!
It is a wacky world we live in!

Wacky is a state of mind. I've been wacky all my life, but, I'm beginning to see 'normal' lately.
