Those eyes get me every time.
Plotz: (verb) to collapse or to faint, as from surprise, excitement or exhaustion.
Plotz is an Americanism that arose in the 1940s. It comes from the Yiddish word platsn, which means to “crack, burst or split.” That word in turn originated from the German word blatzen or platzen.
With the likes of Comic-Con, the Black Sky set and the various premieres and Hobbit press junket events, a growing number of fans have had the opportunity to have an encounter with Mr. Armitage, whether it’s to shake his hand, get an autograph or photo, or have a snippet of conversation with him.
I still find myself wondering how I would react if I ever got to look into those beautiful eyes or had one of those spectacular smiles aimed in my direction. Would I freeze up, would I manage to maintain my composure–would I simply plotz in the presence of such deliciousity?
The mind boggles.
