Collywobbles. This refers to a weird feeling in your stomach or an overall bellyache. It is derived from the Latin phrase cholera morbus, meaning it came from the disease we all know as cholera. This is a word many people still use especially older individuals, and the background is quite dark! Many don’t realize the dark background much like many being unaware of the origins of “Ring around the Rosie.”
I have had the collywobbles all day long. As a matter of fact, I have had the collywobbles for about 3 weeks. I’m not sick. I’m just sick of technology!! We are so overloaded with technology and passwords and computer generated automated answers and no one even answering after hours. I’m sick of hackers and fraudsters having more access to my accounts than I have!!!
Ok.. fun word.. really hit the spot today. Also, possibly the grossest quote I have found.. enjoy
“there was nothing wrong: just a touch of the back-door trots – not the flux, for there was no sign of blood, no spotting in the mustard. ‘I know how to take care o’ myself: not the first time I’ve had a run of the squitters and collywobbles.”
