Visual Vocabulary: Barmy

Barmy: informal or slang terms for mentally irregular. As in, "When mom came home from work and put on her magenta toga and started to walk like an Egyptian for no apparent reason, we knew she had gone completely barmy."

Apparently, "balmy" can also mean mentally irregular. Tomorrow's forecast? Balmy with a chance of nutjob. Better take your umbrella. 


Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. You can see all of them here, and read more about the process behind them here.
