Word Up, YO! Week 7

This week’s WOW! led to a lot of activity. Several of our submissions were particularly rambunctious.

This week, we got our first poet entering. Confessions of a Dr. Mom penned an ode to her rambunctious boy.

We’d also like to thank our ever expanding Nerd Mafia for their continued participation. You’re all fantastic. We appreciate the Made Men showing up to represent week after week. And we simply love the rest of you putting your glasses on in an attempt to get “made”.

So, this week, we’ve got a very special word to celebrate your fantasticness. Hope you have fun with it.

Without further ado, this week’s newly crowned mafioso.

Alyson from Common Sense, Dancing had a stroke of brilliance and used the WOW! to forecast her children’s behavior.

Alyson, In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.

Now, without further ado the Word of the Week is a new slang classic: Hot Mess

Hot Mess
1. Someone or Something that is such a mess… the level of it, is off of the charts. It’s past pathetic, past pitiful.
2. a person who looks as if they’ve been to hell and back

Liz from a belle, a bean and a chicago dog
