I am playing a PC game.
After a lot of bad things happened that day, my character said , "Okay…this is officially the worst day ever.”
How can I interpret “officially” here? The dictionary does not help because it seems none of the definitions fit.
in a formal or authoritative manner:
in a way that is formally acknowledged but is not necessarily the case https://www.thefreedictionary.com/officially
I found a possible answer here. I am not sure if it is correct.
Q: What does “officially “ mean in this sentence?“ I am officially jealous “?
A: Just to emphasize that he is openly declaring that he is jealous.
