Think of the whimsical world of wonderland or adventure world, some would say it’s a strange and funny looking place. That’s exactly what whimsical is, different and unquie fantasies that make you scratch your head and say “huh?!?” Whimsical could be a feel or a description to describe a place, it’s playful and weird. But a truly special idea.
“Have you seen Alice in wonderland, that place is so weird.”

“Well, it’s definitely whimsical. I thought it was kinda beautiful.”

A word used to describe a person that has very little muscle, and has an "Underweight" BMI. They are very skinny, walk with a prance because they are so light, and always lose arm wrestling matches. A mix between the words wimpy, skinny, and magical.***Important: They are by no means gay, and usually are not***
