My Giddy Aunt
My Giddy Aunt : Phrases
My giddy aunt is an expression used to denote surprise.
The giddy in this instance is probably unrelated to a sense of spinning around but rather to an alternative meaning of the word indicating impulsive or scatterbrained (Old English gydig meant mad, frenzied, possessed by God).
