Gig Girl Has A Head Swiliating Experience

by Gig Girl on February 15, 2012

Is that a mortified or proud peacock? I know exactly how he feels...

Proud as a peacock? Or mortified beyond words? I can't tell either...

Gig Girl would like to add one more descriptive to the ever increasing list of adjectives that are slowly defining her 2012:

Head Swiliating: adj  \ˈhed swil-lē-ā-tiŋ\

Definition: Used to describe an occurrence or event that is simultaneously head swelling and humiliating.

Examples of Head Swiliating
Gig Girl found it a surreally head swiliating experience when she received ample, unsolicited praise from not one, but two teachers about her oldest child’s commendable behavior at the very same instant her youngest child burst into an unprovoked and inexplicable shrieking tantrum tirade that instantly cleared the school halls.


When I find a word that describes the act of simultaneously beaming with parental pride while bursting into a panic sweat brimming with maternal mortification I will be sure to add that to my 2012 list as well…

You can always count on one good and one bad. It’s what keeps us guessing if were doing it right…otherwise we would all think we were perfect…
