conniption fit = an angry tirade
Usually someone either pitches a conniption fit, throws a conniption fit or has a conniption fit. I've always been too backward to pitch a conniption fit in public...but I sometimes pitch them in my mind.
p.s. A lot of folks have been asking if The Pressley Girls have any shows booked for this summer. The answer is YES! You can see the list on their website here. If you make it out to one of the shows please come up and say hello, we would love to talk to you.
