Word Of The Week: Imbroglio

I love this word, doesn't it look like fun!  It means 'a confused situation' or 'a confused heap'.  It is Italian and literally translates as 'an entangling'. 



Example?  I guess 'Look at all these wires, it is an imbroglio!' or possibly 'Oh no what an imbroglio!' with regard to someone mistakenly believing you are that other girl who has misheard that guy saying that thing that only this other guy was supposed to know ...

Something like that anyway ...
