A New Word - Quizerdrix

Quizerdrix, n. - The moment between realization and the "fight or flight" reflex following the observation of something ridiculous in which one feels absolutely nothing at all.

In Context:

The octopus fell from the ceiling fan into the puddle of wet paint on the floor as Alan surveyed the scene. He experienced a fleeting moment of quizerdrix for what felt like an eternity before he resolved to crush his rising panic like winter ice over drained puddles on the sidewalk and plunge headlong into the pool. "Fuck the barracuda" he thought, "there's no stopping now..."
