The Wednesday Word - horripilation

Best Blogger Tips

Wednesday 29 April 2009

Today's Wednesday Word is horripilation. It is the technical name for goose bumps or chicken skin or the process of hair bristling on the skin either due to fear or the cold or very bad romantic comedies.

Here is my quote for it:

"It was a dark and stormy night and his horripilation was playing up again quite disturbingly on areas of his skin that did not normally horripilate".

So being good Aussies and abbreviating it, would one say "Ooh, that gives me the horripies" ?
