a term that has seeped it's way into our vernacular, particularly over the last 6 months or so, is "wig". commonly used in many forms such as "wigging out", "wiggy" and "having a wig". it started small but has grown at an alarming rate. the descriptive qualities of the word are quite limitless and sometimes, there is simply nothing else that can better communicate a mood or situation. however, i think maybe there is too much wig being thrown around.
the other day, the following conversation took place:
boy: and she kept saying, "and then she just wigged out", and i was like what? and she's like "she just wigged out! it was weird! she just totally wigged out and left". and i'm like what the hell is this wigged out? what does it mean?
it's a valid point. what is this wigged out? it has grown to mean much more than a drug-induced paranoia. it doesn't even have to relate to illegal substances.
i think it's safe to say that, to 'wig out' is generally negative. it relates to someone acting strange or overreacting- unnecessarily.
"when ko called johnny a bitch, johnny completely wigged out."
"smoking in the park was awesome until chris wigged out and made us leave. it's not like the cops would have seen us."

however, the term 'wiggy' doesn't have to be negative. it can just be something that is weird, usually in a funny way.
