Pronunciation: hyper-ob-nox-i-tive

Sentence: Carol was afraid that Steve's behavior was becoming more and more bizarre. She couldn't have her friends over anymore for fear that they would be alarmed by his increasingly unrestrained, gauche behavior. One day, while waiting for her nail appointment, she read in a Woman's magazine the 7 warning signs of hyperobnoxitivity. She never knew there was a name for his condition. All this time she thought it was the beer. So she took the test and was shocked. There ws no doubt. Steve was hyperobnoxitive. Carol quickly called her therapist to have Steve diagnosed so he could begin treatment. Perhaps this would save her marriage.

Etymology: Hyper: pref. (Greek: huper) over, beyond; excessive. Obnoxious: adj. highly objectionable, offensive Sensitive: adj. physiology--having a low threshold of sensation or feeling.


It was a great idea to treat this condition like a disease! You might have set us all a challenge for the day ... to create a pill for hyperobnoxtivity! It will be fun to check back and see if you or anyone else does. - silveryaspen, 2009-03-19: 13:23:00

mrskellyscl Sadly, this isn't completely curable -- however, some therapies such as cold shoulder and couch have been known to help manage it. Anyone who would like to donate to find a cure, let me know. - mrskellyscl, 2009-03-19: 13:34:00

Pronunciation: Skal - ah - wag - gur

Sentence: Ol Buffy was a scalawagger... His tail was fast, he was no lagger. Up and down the street he ran after cars and after vans. He took the food right off one's plate and with every female dog did mate. But now he is all dead and gone so this is the end of my doggie song.

Etymology: scalawag, wag, wagger... A scalawag one who is playfully mischievous and one that is also a wagger has a tail to wag as does a dog
