No, my title has nothing to do with Twitter, whatsoever. It is in reference to a scene from the popular Disney movie “Bambi”, in particular, this one:
Thumper: Why are they acting that way?
Friend Owl: Why, don’t you know? They’re twitterpated.
Flower, Bambi, Thumper: 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!
Thumper: Gosh, that’s awful.
As the much hyped Valentine’s Day comes to an end, I put up this post. Just to say that Friend Owl was right about it all, right down to the losing of your head :) But I wish I had been around to tell Thumper that it is in no way awful. It is something wonderful, to feel this way, and I will always hold out the hope that I can, someday. As should you :)
Here’s to being Twitterpated!
