The feeling was very apoplectic…

I went to visit a very good friend in the Lake Tahoe region in 2007. When we went to the mountainous lake frontage and took in the sights of Lake Tahoe, it became apparent that I was in a “Euphoric” environment. The feeling was very apoplectic!

apoplectic \ ap-uh-plek-tik \
adjective:
1. Intense enough to threaten or cause a stroke.
2. Of or pertaining to apoplexy.
3. Having or inclined to apoplexy.
noun:
1. A person having or predisposed to apoplexy.

Origin: Apoplectic stems from the Greek word apoplēktikós which meant “pertaining to stroke”. It literally meant “struck down”.
