Definition: v. To send out confused or conflicting signals when driving or dating. n. A person who signals their intentions to do one thing, then does something else completely different.

Pronunciation: zigwag

Sentence: Some say that Buddy was affected by being the runt of the litter. Some say he was dropped on his head. Whatever the case, the wiring in his brain is clearly crossed up. He will snarl viciously as he licks your face and in a ugly case of zigwag, will wag his tail happily while he tries to bite your fingers. The only thing that keeps this behavior from being dangerous is the fact that this chihuahua mix is about the size of a large mouse.

Etymology: zigzag (a line or course having abrupt alternate right and left turns) + (tail) wag (move or cause to move rapidly to and fro)
