Brit' Word of the Day

Todays BWOTD is very commonly heard back home:

"She just got all het up about it for no reason"

'Het Up' = Agitated or flustered

This would have been exactly how I'd describe myself last Friday when 2 of the 'minor' (thankfully) awards were not at the Assembly! Guess what - yesterday I found them casually sitting exactly where they had been all along, in MY awards folder instead of my bosses!!

It must come from "all heated up." No one's perfect, but you're close to it as a secretary!!!

See, my grandmother used to say that. That's what has been so interesting to me about some of your Brit words is that they're words I heard from my grandparents and great-grandparents growing up. Though they all talked like the Arkansas country people they were - their "way back" roots were British Isles - Irish and English.

Heard of it, but it's not something I've ever used. Love your BWOTW by the way!

LOL! I had no idea that was a Brit word; I thought it was a hick word. Someone once made fun of me for being a hick when I said "het up" so I've been careful to never say it again.
