Word Wednesday Fun: Bizarre
Bizarre is a word that is often not associated with fun, and of course, fun is an integral part of the #WordWednesdayFun series.
I was recently accused of behaving bizarrely and that wasn’t funny particularly as it was applied to me by someone I believed was a friend. I suppose if disagreeing with an accusation then trying to explain on three occasions; then walking off as a result of a complete failure to listen to my explanation, nay, a total failure to hear me out is bizarre, then so be it! My conscience is clear.
Once more folks I follow the usual pattern with the Merriam-Webster definition first then the Urban Dictionary. I wonder if that will be bizarre?
