Vocabulary Lesson

Matt and I recently had a debate about the true meaning of both of these words:


a person who is lacking in or hostile to or smugly indifferent to cultural values, intellectual pursuits, aesthetic refinement, etc., or who is contentedly commonplace in ideas and tastes.


to render utterly perplexed; to puzzle completely.

All I'm saying is, for the last 10 years I've been using "nonplussed" as a synonym for "underwhelmed." Who knew?
