I wrote the phrase “all jumped up” in a 2015 journal and now have no idea why… it was under the “ideas” column.

Perhaps I was thinking a that a pogo stick could be “jumped up.” We had one as kids — bouncy, bouncy, bouncy. All jumped up.

Maybe it meant that one of my grandsons had jumped onto a low stool, and therefore was all jumped up.

Or perhaps it struck me funny that day for a reason that I can’t now remember.

Or — and this is the honest truth now that I am looking at it more closely — it doesn’t even say “All Jumped Up.” It says “All Jumbled Up,” which totally makes more sense since I am almost always jumbled up.
