mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: key-ro-shun

Sentence: Maxine was shiftwrecked due to keyrosion. Her computer was spacebarred and pitted, her mousepooped from exhaustion and she was becoming debilitated from numberless keystrokes.

She worried that she had become typecast, spending every day wading in the typingpool for her shift to come in. Maxine realized at that moment that she had spent too much time backspacing away from her dreams of adventure and romance, so she decided to correct the error. She used her trusty keyboard one last time to type up her letter of resignation and booked herself on the next cruise to the islands.

Etymology: key: lever that operated a mechanism when depress as in the keys of a keyboard + erosion: wearing away or pitting caused by natural processes such as abrasion, grinding or chemical means or overuse

Fingeroded

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: feVCn-gur-ode-ed

Sentence: Some folks have the "Midias touch"... well Kimberly has the hydrochloric acid touch. Maybe it was because she was heavy-handed in every sense of the word, or maybe because she used lemon juice as hand sanitizer. Whatever the reason, Kimberly's routine could be mapped through the fingeroded surfaces that enabled her daily life. These surfaces included the preset buttons of the only two radio stations she listed to while driving to work, the speed dial button calling QVC from her office phone, and the bald spot under her cat, button's, chin. "Oh, he doesn't mind," Kimberly explained "I saved him from a life of testing cosmetics. Never met a cat as obedient as Button."

Etymology: finger (you might have five of them on each hand) + eroded (worn away slowly)
