I'm happy that old friends are showing up for carnival, but alreay I feel sort of overwhelmed.

Got my taxes done, though.

tr.v. whelmed, whelm·ing, whelms

1. To cover with water; submerge.
2. To overwhelm.

Lots of people comment on the word overwhelm, and ask why nobody is ever just plain whelmed. Well, apparently they are, because it's the same as overwhelm. But then what state is actually between overwhelmed and underwhelmed? And how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? Same answer.
