Super confused. This, Katya assumed, was an idiom, because otherwise it was an oxymoron - ‘super,’ she had learned, was short for superlative, and Anton Petrovich said Americans used it to mean ‘good.’ One could not really be good confused, though, not in a literal sense, and so logically she thought she could assume it meant something non-literal.
