And that word is "Panic"...
A quick search on the web for the exact definition of "Panic" brought back the following:
"An overwhelming feeling of fear and Anxiety"
(I also found "To cause a sudden fear in or fill with sudden panic..." but I find definitions that include the word they are defining within them useless, and insulting to our intelligence....)
What does the word "panic" mean to my Dad? My Dad described it thusly:
" "Panic" is when your wife tells you the story of how her co-worker (who was also pregnant) was due to have her baby on Thanksgiving, and had the baby this past weekend."
Man...Dad is being such a baby, don't you think?
