Yesterday we was to my niece's wedding party and all the girls were crazy for one of the waiters. And I myself have to agree that he was a very good looking guy.

    What doesn't make sense in your sentence is yesterday we was to. – Jason Bassford Jun 1 '19 at 23:45
  • Thanks for the explanation, Michael. That was great. – Itamar Jun 1 '19 at 23:47
  • Thanks, Jason. Now I can see it's wrong. I should have used "we were" instead. – Itamar Jun 1 '19 at 23:49
  • @Itamar Actually, that should be "we went to" not "we were to" or "we was to" although I think "we were to" is used in VERY informal BrE. In AmE, it would be taken as a clear error. – David Siegel Jun 2 '19 at 0:55
  • Nice tip, David. Thanks a lot. – Itamar Jun 2 '19 at 4:08

Consider "crazy for" to mean "very enthusiastic about". We often say that people are "crazy" or "mad" about, or for, something or someone. Figuratively a comparison is being made, perhaps, with obsessive mental illness, although 'crazy about/for' used this way does not imply any abnormality.


2 Extremely enthusiastic.

‘I'm crazy about Cindy’
