Today’s cartoon is based on an actual conversation my wife and I had today. As I was saying it I realized underwhelmed is NOT the opposite of overwhelmed even though “over” and “under” are.
- Bury or drown beneath a huge mass.
- Defeat completely.
- Fail to impress or make a positive impact on (someone); disappoint
You would think they wouldn’t BOTH be bad. Anyone else think of two words that should mean opposite things but really aren’t?
