Thursday Word: Verklempt

This comic is based on an actual conversaton I had with my sister.



Definiton:
A Yiddish word that means "overcome with emotion." Pronounced "fer-klempt," people use it when they are so emotional that they're on the verge of tears or at a loss for words due to their emotional state.
