Learn-A-Word Wednesday

Learn-A-Word Wednesday: mazy \MAY-zee\

adjective:
Resembling a maze in form or complexity; winding; intricate; confusing; perplexing.
By now some 20 characters are caught in the turns and baffles of Mr. Dunne’s mazy plot.– George Stade, “A Fisherman of Guilt”, New York Times, March 28, 1982
Mazy is the adjective form of maze, which comes from Middle English mase, from masen, “to confuse, to daze,” from Old English amasian, “to confound.” It is related to amaze, which originally meant “to bewilder.”


Amazing I wonder where this word originally originated from. LOL
Mind you that's how I feel when I wake up in the mornig and there is no electricity.
BEWILDERED - because I cant have any coffee- lol. And the kids are moaning because they want cereal.
Thank goodness for gas camping stoves!! And Pierre always being well prepared for these eventualities.
