Sentence: When celebrating a surprize birthday party with her twin brother, Roxie's friends found out that they were not identical: he was forty-five and she was only thirty-one! Despite her candleblush, she quickly explained to all and sundry, "I never forgotten my age - once I decided what it was to be!"
Etymology: CANDLE: (the number of) as a symbol of age on a birthday cake & BLUSH: To become red in the face through embarassment.
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

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
