She was Truly Outrageous!

funny word of the day: pizzazz

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

Variant(s): or pi·zazz \pə-ˈzaz\
Function: noun
Etymology: origin unknown
Date: 1937
: the quality of being exciting or attractive: as a : glamour b : vitality
— piz·zazzy or pi·zazzy \-ˈza-zē\ adjective

For some reason, this word sounds like it came from the 80s and really should have stayed there. It may remind me of that decade because Pizzazz was the name of the lead singer of The Misfits, the rival band to The Holograms in the popular 80s cartoon Jem (yes, I had a Jem doll and knew the lyrics to the theme song..."Jem is truly outrageous, truly, truly, truly outrageous!"). Pizzazz wore one chatreuse knee sock and was an evil bitch. But she did have pizzazz!
