Sometimes a word just fits. So what that you made it up and bastardized the English language in the process? If it gets your point across, does it really matter?
Here are few words spewed forth from my keyboard that aren’t in the dictionary, but fabsolutely should be!
Blunderment: an awkward or embarrassing moment brought about by one’s own stupidity /“That fall in front of my child’s school was a blunderment of unspeakable proportions.”
Fabsolutely: an exceedingly enthusiastic, yet sincere “Yes!” response / “Would I like to spend a child free day at the spa? Fabsolutely!”
Manderpants: mens’ underwear, most often found inside-out on the bedroom floor / “I swear,if I find those manderpants on the floor one more time, I’ll stuff them up your nose.”
Sapimental: a sappy, sentimental feeling or display of emotion resulting from nostalgia; often includes “happy tears” or the “laugh/sob” / “Pass me a tissue. I’m feeling a little sapimental today.”
Halloweiner: a husband who takes great pleasure from scaring innocent children on Halloween. “I can’t believe you threw a severed leg at those kids! You are such a Halloweiner!”
Commfitment: a vow to get fit, like, for REALS this time. “I have made a serious commfitment. Pick me up for Zumba ok? It’s too far to walk. Also, want to go for nachos after?”
No-phlegm-ber: a mother’s futile attempt to keep colds at bay when the first signs of winter hit. “Use a Kleenex! Wash your hands!! There are germs everywhere. No colds ok? Let’s make this November a Nophlegmber to remember!”
Hectivity: when your schedule is so overrun with tasks and activities, life becomes hectic.“I’m so overbooked. This week is rife with hectivity!”
Blubbergasted:combination of blubber and flabbergasted, meaning worn out due to being fat. “Mum, you look completely blubbergasted after swimming across the pool.”
Miffitude: when you are so miffed about something it causes a detrimental shift in attitude. “Whoah! What’s with the sudden miffitude? I said I’d clean up later. Chill.”
