Unfortunately, I told Sue something and it was secret and I didn’t want her to tell everyone but she blabbed it to everyone in the office.
- a KLUTZ
a clumsy person, if you always spill something or break something, you’re a klutz
My boyfriend is a real klutz, he has broken two laptops by spilling coffee on them.
when you’re absolutely confused, you are flummoxed
She was flummoxed when her boyfriend popped the question.
- TO CANOODLE
(a bit old-fashioned) When you’re with your boyfriend or your girlfriend and things start to get a bit sexy, you’re canoodling (such as cuddling, caressing or kissing)
