Ritestuffing

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ryte stuf fing

Sentence: Ava Dupois had developed a system called ritestuffing to try and watch her calories. If she ordered a big juicy hamburger with all the trimmings, she would be sure to order a diet soda with which to wash it down. Her logic being that the no calories in the soda would counteract the many calories of the burger. In her mind, you could undo all the harm that your favourite fatty foods might do simply by counterbalancing with non-caloric foods. By the same ritestuffing philosophy, she'd eat apple pie with low-cal frozen yogurt on top;mix rum with diet Coke; wash down chocolate cake with skim milk and eat French fries with diet ketchup. She dreamed she could market her philosophy and become the next big diet guru to make a fortune. Move over Jenny Craig and WeightWatchers! Although mentally she felt skinnier using ritestuffing, for some reason, she was having problems fitting into her clothes. This of course she put down to the theory of the dreaded shrinkhangers that lurked in her closet.

Etymology: Rite (ritual,of or relating to or characteristic of religious rituals; any customary observance or practice)& Stuffing (overeating or eating immodestly; make a pig of oneself; fillng completely)& The Right Stuff (You've got what it takes, and then some!)

Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Rollback. It may be science fiction, but when Rob gets rolling you can't help but laugh at the details of our daily lives -- like eating pizza. Rollback's pizza moment starts off with, "She was used to the way her husband ate pizza, but couldn't actually say she liked it", and then jumps right into the gory details. Thanks Rob! ~ James
