Twitterpated

Flower: [about two birds fluttering around] What's the matter with them?
Thumper: Why are they acting that way?
Owl: Why, don't you know? They're twitterpated.
Flower, Bambi, Thumper: Twitterpated?
Owl: Yes. Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example: You're walking along, minding your own business. You're looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of a sudden you run smack into a pretty face. Woo-woo! You begin to get weak in the knees. Your head's in a whirl. And then you feel light as a feather, and before you know it, you're walking on air. And then you know what? You're knocked for a loop, and you completely lose your head!
Thumper: Gosh, that's awful.
Flower: Gee whiz.
Bambi: Terrible!
Owl: And that ain't all. It could happen to anyone, so you'd better be careful.
Owl: [points at Bambi] It could happen to you…
Owl: [points at Thumper] …or you, or even...
Owl: [Flower looks at Owl shyly] Yes, it could even happen to you!
Thumper: Well, it's not gonna happen to me.
Bambi: Me neither.
Flower: Me neither.

Yeah, that's pretty much how it happens.

The next Usher smash hit, "Baby got me Twitterpated."

Chief Slacker said...

It's funny how the spring does that ;O) whichever disney person thought up that word was genius!

Amber said...

Best. Feeling. Ever.

It's like the feeling of kissing someone for the first time.

Sigh.

You know, using large words like "twitterpated" really cuts out some of your readership. You should play to the lowest common denomiator, as defined by the fine folks at Franklin Covey, and go with "like, totally in to"

That's too cute.

So sweet ... I love Bambi - the first film I remember seeing, made me cry too.

Angel With an Attitude said...
