It does not mean what you think it means

Dear coworkers who babble all too frequently near my desk: “nonplussed” actually does not mean the same as “unfazed” but um…the opposite.  Thank you, please drive through.

Random gibberish from my mind, mostly dealing with technology, cooking, politics, and my family. Occasional cat posts - be warned.

    I had to ask my brilliant wife what “nonplussed” meant because it keeps coming up in the Harry Potter books. At least I’m smart enough (err, dumb enough?) to not go around using words incorrectly!
