Are you or have you, ever been called a Flibbertigibbet?

I just love the Word of the Day for Jan. 6. It is “flibbertigibbet”.
Although certainly not a nice thing to call anyone and especially a young lady, you have to admit it sounds rather impressive doesn’t it?
So the next Time someone calls you a Dumb Blonde, tell them you are not. Tell them you are simply a Flibbertigibbet!
That is, “A silly, flighty, or scatterbrained person, especially a pert young woman with such qualities.” No real difference I agree, but you will dumbfound them with this extraordinary word.
According to the word of the Day source, “Flibbertigibbet is from Middle English flipergebet, which is probably an imitation of the sound of meaningless chatter.”
Which on reflection, is what this blog is today: Meaningless chatter! So Bye for now!
