Today I have collywobbles. I must have eaten something or not eaten enough of something today to cause this stomach problem. All day my stomach has been doing flip flops – it sucks. 😦
Anyways, that’s not stopping me from posting WWW and if you haven’t guessed it – the word is collywobbles. But what does it mean?
Pretty much what I put in the first part – a collywobble is when you feel pain in the abdomen and especially in the stomach; a bellyache. People believe that this word came from the Latin word pertaining to cholera (cholera morbus). Although it may have been used as a serious medical term back in the day, it now has changed to signify much lesser/ sever gastrol issue(s). Not to mention it is a super fun word to say over and over again. 🙂
