Flabbergast: to overcome with surprise and bewilderment; astound.
My friend Amy called to tell me a true story. I was walking on campus listening to her, but at times what she said made me stop dead in my tracks. I believe that I was completely “flabbergasted.”
The story is a love triangle of sorts. Amy was dating this guy…who told her that if he and she were the last people on earth he would be perfectly contented…and the next day broke up with her saying that it was because of “her feelings”. Ah, I see. He admits something heartfelt and then the next day claims her feelings as the reason he can’t see her anymore.
He starts dating Amy’s friend. Yes. You heard me right. Her friend. Anyway. This guy and that girl date for a while and start talking marriage. And when the girl is out of town, the guy writes an email to Amy and says he “likes” this other girl but doesn’t think he’s ready for commitment and is instead moving to California. In the meantime the girl is out with her girlfriends on vacation planning wedding stuff. Ah. I see. It makes perfect sense to me. In WTF land!So, tell me again why I’m searching for love? I don’t seem to remember any more.
