A “crazy” modern English word

I think crazy traditionally means “mad” or “insane” as in a mental problem, but it now can be used in a variety of ways to create new expressions:

 

To be crazy about something / someone

You really like something / are passionate about it / them. (As in sexual attraction to another person.)

“I’m crazy about you!” (I really like you.)

 

Describe something that is fun / wild / indescribable

“We had a crazy weekend!” (It was fun, wild or really mad e.g. lots of strange things happened.)

 

Describe a very busy period

“It was a crazy day in the office today.” (It was very busy.)

 

Drive someone crazy

Make them angry.

“I can’t stand him, he drives me crazy!”

 

That’s all for now. Have a crazy weekend, everyone!
