startles

Post by eun-jung »

My boyfriend always makes supprising event to me.
So I'm always startled again and again. :oops:

The news gave me a great startle.

The noise startled me out of my sleep.

This is a true story:

I was startled yesterday. My dog bit my nose for no reason. I was so shocked I didn't know what to do. I just sat there and told my wife what happened. Then she saw the blood and got me some tissues, but it was bleeding a lot. I had to go to the emergency room and get 6 stitches.

This is a very interesting one because startle is not usually used as a noun. It is possible though. From Hyperdictionary.com:
A sudden motion or shock caused by an unexpected alarm,
surprise, or apprehension of danger.

After having recovered from my first startle, I was
very well pleased with the accident. --Spectator.
