Flabbergasted – adj. Appalled over how much weight you have gained.
Barbeques, weddings, cook-outs, festivals… the many summer social scenes are just filled with all kinds of noms that we just can’t seem to get enough of, from steaks and ribs to frothy frozen daiquiris and all those juicy melons, summer treats are the best, but summertime can leave you feeling flabbergasted, maybe even more so than winter does. Summer treats can taste light and healthy, but combine those all those healthy fruits and vegetables with those charcoal-broiled meats and all those sides like coleslaw, potato salads, and deviled eggs, and you have an appetite for destruction that KISS never wrote a song about. It might just take a night at KISS concert, plus several other hard rock bands to burn off all those calories we have been consuming over the summer holidays. (Lost 4lbs in one night at an INXS concert, so it can be done!) So be flabbergasted if you want to be, because you have every right to be, thanks to Americana traditions. We can’t all be vegan hippies sipping on herbal teas and making do with salads made from organically grown ingredients, even though it might not be such a bad idea. The chances of becoming flabbergasted would drop dramatically.
