    Default wild-looking/give a thought

    Hi

    Some people were observing a woman:

    They found her, dry-eyed but pale and wild-looking
    getting out her cooking things as though she ’d gone
    crazy’, Ella Flack reported. No, she said, Sydney was just
    the same; but she had to give a thought to Wesley, too,
    hadn’t she? How was he going to live through the next
    week with no. food in the house?

    I have 3 short questions:

    1. What other word can be used instead of "wild-looking"?
    2. Does it mean she didn't want to cook and behaved like she was crazy?
    3. I think "give a thought to somebody" means "to think of somebody", right?

    Thanks

    Not a teacher

    This may help some:

    1.
    Looking unable to control her emotions.
    2. It means: "getting ot her cooking things in a mad, disordely manner".
    3. She also had to take Wesley into consideration.

    So numer two means that she cooked like she was mad? It doesn't mean that she didn't want to cook?
