Freaking Freaky!

We meet them all the time, freaks!

I mean, Every-one is a freak, I always thought I was a freak, as in weirdo :-D
Weird because I have these little things I am too particular about.
Weird because, when I am expected to get angry, I may not even bother to react; and when I am expected to stay calm, I may get hyper no-end. Yes, I am moody.
Weird because I don't necessarily mean whatever I say.
Weird because I am different!
[Bloody hell I am.]


Very recently, I had this desire to know what exactly the word "freak" means. So, short-cut, googled it. Got to Thesaurus. Thats when I realised how multi-fauceted this word is!


They have 3 senses they define this word in and every synonym given in each of these 3 senses is, errmm, absolutely NOT synonymous to each other! So, when one says the particular word under question, they can mean so many things!

*~*In the first sense, Freak is synonymous to Curiosity.
Meanings used later in this sense are:- rarity, oddity, mutant, aberration, anomaly, one-off, unusual, irregular
Also, an abnormally formed, especially in a person or an animal, regarded as curiosity or monstrosity [evil grin*]

*~*Synonym in second sense: Enthusiastic.
Or else; fanatic, fiend, nut, lover, buff

*~*Need more variety? Third sense synonym here is Chance.
and; surprise, happenstance, accident, fluke, a sudden capricious turn of mind, a whim.

And if this wasn't enough, In a forth sense, [read slang] I came across a whole new bunch of words directly related!
*~*A drug user or addict: a speed freak.
*~*An eccentric or nonconformist person, especially a member of a counterculture.
*~*An enthusiast: rock music freaks.

So, now when I say, I am a freak I might mean, either that I am curious, or rare, or odd, or mutant, or irregular, or enthusiastic, or fanatic, or fanatic, or nut, or lover, or buff; phew!

Yes, I sure am a freak! :-P

Trying to define "Freak" is the same as trying to define "Normal".
