twitterpated - confused by affection or infatuation
Flower: [about two birds fluttering around] Well! What's the matter with them?
Thumper: Why are they acting that way?
Friend Owl: Why, don't you know? They're twitterpated.
Friend 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!
Around our house the conversations have been about who likes who a lot lately. Rocky has always said that "kids get all twitterpated" in the spring. He should know since he is around all of those goofy high school kids everyday. I mentioned this word to my bestest friend, Stacy, yesterday and she had never heard it. I felt the need to pass along the information so that we can all watch out, cause spring is coming, and you may just become twitterpated.
