When I was a teen in High School, I distinctly remember coming across such a word while turning over the pages of a paperback dictionary.
The meaning was something like this:
A person who knows he has the attention of everyone in the room, overreacts and grumpily leaves the room (may be shutting the door behind). Imagining a teenage girl might help. What is the word for this?
P.S. Knowing the word would give me inner peace, as of now my ignorance of the word leaves me with a deep sense of dissatisfaction.
