Precypher

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pree sy fer

Sentence: Buzz took a summer job being a 'gofer' for Mr. Dave DaVinci, who was a man about town. He equipped Buzz and all his office staff with Blackberries so he could contact them constantly and give them instruction no matter when or where. This would be fine, but he had made up his own abbreviations which when put together, made absolutely no sense. Buzz was the only one who seemed to be able to precypher these messages and anticipate his boss' needs. No one else was able to translate the encriptions from the boss. Buzz would later brag that he had cracked DaVinci's Code.

Etymology: pre (Before it happens, prior to) & cypher (a message written in a secret code;a secret method of writing;convert ordinary language into code)

Yes, comments...you add them and just hope they show up where you thought. Since this seems a good a place as any AND since I waited long enough to not "jump the gun" like the other time I thought I had the winning word... "I would like to thank The Academy, the cast and crew, Kraft service, all little people I stepped on to get here, of course God, Jesus and my parents...for if it wasn't for them I would be here." *music kicks in...dancing guy with hook comes out from behind curtains..." "OH! I have to hurry!!! You like me! You really, really like me!" (classis Sally Field Oscar moment...but you guys knew that, right?) :)
