WIFTY

WIFF-tee -- (adj.) Eccentrically silly; ditzy, scatterbrained, and unfocused.


Wifty folk have a certain magnetism in their madness. If not careful this term could just as easily be applied to the town drunkard as those craze-haired men who wander the streets of Oxford -- they're so brilliant they're crazy, or so crazy they're brilliant. True, wifty lots are difficult to maintain linear conversations with, but so long as you understand this and remain flexible, much can be learned from the wifty minded. By their very nature, their scatterbrained ways mean that they absorb more content in faster time, hopping from one thought to another as a feather in a windstorm. Madness, yes. Genius? Sometimes... in glimmers. An observer's patience is key to glimpsing the gems of the wifty mind.
