Apperil: /a-par'-el/ On a beautiful spring morning Jamagra could not decide what to wear to work. She always found this standing-in- front-of-the-closet part of the day disdressing and attiresome. After going through all of her apperil once again, Jamagra decided to skip the chafing and agcessorizing for one day. She phoned her excuses to the office ("illness and fatigue" because she was sick and tired of working) then went out to the garden. After donning her (non)tortureshell sunglasses, Jamagra pinched back some blooms and bound the peas to their trellis. "Much better than pinchy shoes and binding skirts," thought Jamagra. Etymology: apparel (clothing) + peril (something that may cause injury; grave risk) "agcessorizing" - agonizing + accessorizing Created by: Jamagra.
