Comfort eating is what we would call this verboticism anyway. It's like that other one where there was already a phrase in use (Freudian slip). - Discoveria, 2007-03-12: 11:53:00

Can't you be more original then that? Lame - tonya87, 2007-03-12: 15:03:00

tonya87, that wasn't very encouraging...I didn't mean to start anything. - Discoveria, 2007-03-12: 19:19:00

Well, I must say I used that one precisely because there already existed a definition. I think it should be evaluated next to new ones. - allwise, 2007-03-13: 04:50:00
