Ecolinized

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ee kol ee nyzed

Sentence: Pathogenia thought she was alone in her abode. It was not until after she had had several showers in the less-than-new apartment that she felt crowded out. At first it was the odd spot or streak on the curtain or wall, but after a few days, she realized she was ecolinized by a different life form. Thank goodness for her new boyfriend, Mr. Klean. He came straight over after her panicky call and sprayed every inch of the bathroom with his essence. The orange blight was eliminated and she was once more alone in her apartment. At least until the mice, silverfish and cockroaches drop in for a visit...

Etymology: E-coli (Escherichia coli-Escherichia coli (abbreviated as E. coli) are a large and diverse group of bacteria) & Colonized (a settlement; those who settle in a new colony or move into new country; migrants)
