    Re: whoopsie

    It's a word often used when a child falls over - it is an extension of this:
    whoops

    (also whoops-a-daisy)
    exclamation informal expressing mild dismay

    Miss Lillian must have slipped and fallen!

    Re: whoopsie

    Thanks, Anglika.
    So, she just slipped and fell down, and there are no extra implications such as being old, foolish, and couldn't even take care of herself, not to mention being a good babysitter.

    Mildly - but Garfield's expression tells you all that too.

    I'm sorry but I don't understand why you use "mildly" here. Does it mean covertly or in a mild way?

    I'm sorry but I don't understand "mildly" here. Does it mean "covertly" or in a mild way?
