Embaristament

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: em-bear-ees-ta-ment

Sentence: It was a beastly hot day in Georgia and the place was Java Sun, a combination expresso shop and tanning parlor. Sootie thought she could get away it. Instead of her usual, she had ordered a decaf frozen mocha (with whipped cream) from the new barista while Josh was on his break at the gun shop next door. She and Josh had a serious thing about three shots going. It was bad timing when Josh arrived before she had finished the delightful new concoction. She panicked when she realized she didn't have time to slip into one of the beds down the hall. Her heart began skipping more beats than usual as she saw Josh sniffing. She knew it was over as he approached her, downing the last dregs, and sidling towards the trash can. She could have died of embaristament.

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kulpa lay bel itee

Sentence: Saundra was jeanetically challenged. She loved her old Levi's, but of late found them more expensive, the right fits harder to find and the brand carried less design variety for a fashionista like her. She had guiltily bought a marvy pair of new jeans with rhinestones and embroidery adorning them at a discount store. So what if they would only last through a few washes before they shredded. With a fearsome culpalabelity, she wore them to work one day. Her eagle-eyed manager spotted the new jeans right away. He shouted, "Saundra you can only come waltzing into this Levi's store if it is by Stauss!"

Etymology: Culpability (a state of guilt) & Label (brand;trade name;an identifying or descriptive marker that is attached to an object)
