Traumagetized

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: trom - age - tized

Sentence: Jennifer looked great. After 38 appointments with Dr. Slinky, all of her fine lines and wrinkles had disappeared. She was convinced that she could pass for at least 15 years younger. What she totally forgot to consider was that she had living relatives who knew when she was born. Her worst fears came through when her relatives pitched in to rent a billboard on Route 290 going towards downtown Chicago as a birthday surprise. It bore the familiar "lordy, lordy, Jen is forty" cliche and featured some prize pictures of her, such as her birth photo, the day she lost her front teeth and the day she got her first bra. After Jennifer finally drove past the billboard, she became traumagetized.

Etymology: Traumatized (having physical or emotional shock inflicted) is the base word but the word Age is inserted in the middle of this word.

There was Ted who "loved to take long walks" (cause he lost his license); Ernie who "loved children" (had one in each state);George who was "newly single" (since his wife kicked him out when she caught him in bed with a nun and a dachshund); Reg who loved "romantic dinners at home" (at her home, cooked by her,because he was too cheap to take her to McDonald's); Fred who was "a man of independent means" (since his pogey had kicked in); Gary who was "college-educated" (thanks to the Corrections Service Inmate Education Program);and Norris who was "a social drinker" (he apparently was social 24/7!) Fed-up, Agatha lied about her age (now 39) and a few other details (forgot to mention all that plastic surgery, oops) and attracted the attention of Biff, a twenty eight year old paramedic. Things went well on her first date with the robust young ambulance jockey. That is, until they ran into his parents.

Wow, fraternal twins of different ages! I think I remember hearing about that in a science documentary on the Theory of Relativity once, involving one twin travelling in a really fast spaceship. - Tigger, 2008-02-05: 02:48:00

Great word, BTW! - Tigger, 2008-02-05: 02:52:00

good one again OZZIE! - bananabender, 2008-02-05: 04:24:00

Very interesting word Ozziebob. It reminds me of some other word, but im not sure. Very soft sounding word without being too harsh. Cool! - Dougalistic, 2008-02-05: 04:52:00

Such a romantic way of putting it ... evoking the empathy we all have for each other as the years pass. Doug said it better in the last sentence of his comment ... it is so soft. - silveryaspen, 2008-02-05: 07:07:00

I second all of the above! (Especially silveryaspen's comment about how romantic it sounds.) You got my vote! - Maxine, 2008-02-05: 07:26:00

Fantastic word. - ErWenn, 2008-02-05: 10:13:00

Had so much fun with your definition remistram! All kinds of related verboticisms popped into my mind, some of which I couldn't resist putting in my sentence as I sat here laughing out loud. Everyone's great creations made me laugh more. Fun definition!

ErWenn - 2008-02-05: 10:09:00
I've made it a point to let my friends know that on my birthday cake, I expect one candle for every year of my age. (Next is the big three-oh.) You can't stop getting older, so you might as well enjoy the fire hazard that your birthday cake is slowly becoming.

Can relate - turned the big 4-0 in January....ack!
