Pronunciation: hell - per - skell - ter

Sentence: Lenny was beginning to feel all hellperskelter. Instead of experiencing the warm fuzzy feeling that should come with doing good deeds for his friends, he had been thrust into some type of helper hell where everything had gone awry. He gave his friend Bruce an opinion about a relationship issue last week which had led to his breakup with Ilene. Now, Jenny was calling him to inform him that he had killed her prize Yucca plant that he had done his best to care for when she was out of town on business.

Etymology: The word helper (someone who assists another or helps) is combined with Hell to form the first part of this word + skelter (from helter skelter) tumultuous disorder; confusion.


Great word. Great etymology - silveryaspen, 2008-12-02: 13:08:00
