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.

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!

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.
