So Suppressed!

I appreciate that Rosie is happily able to give old grumpy words new fun, fluid definitions...
My most favorite recent example...

First, as defined by Webster
verb [ with obj. ]
forcibly put an end to: the uprising was savagely suppressed.
ORIGIN late Middle English
And Rosie's alternative and far more fun meaning...
"being really, really surprised and impressed at the EXACT SAME TIME"

Origin: Southwestern Ohio Target store, Hello Kitty girls fashion rack
properly used in a sentence...
"This hat is so beautiful! If I wear it to school my friends will be SO SUPPRESSED to see it!"

Apologies to you, Mr. Webster.
