Sod him, the rake...he thought he was so poplar! She turfed aside her negative feelings when out in her garden and with thyme, grew more sage. Her efforts in the garden helped rid her Hostality and control her impatiens. Her favourite fantasy while working the earth was to plan ways she could root out her rotten husband, the son of a birch: hit him in the gourd; beet him; artichoke him and let the life leek from him. But instead of pining fir him, she decided that sooner or later he'd begonia and she could prune him out of her life forever. Dill death do us part, indeed! She rose from her planting as all was well with the Cosmos, spruced herself up and went into the house to catch another episode of her favourite show, Lawn Order.

Etymology: rob (to steal) & optimist (someone who finds the good in everything and everyone)

Wonderblah

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: won/der/blah

Sentence: The child's enthusiasm and delight was immediately snapped by her mother's negative comment. It was a wonderblah moment.

Etymology: wonder + blah

COMMENTS:

Wonderblah could describe my experience shopping for bras online yesterday. Why women want those plastic tubes poking at their ribs all day, I'll never know. And why do men wear little nooses around their necks? Do they secretly want to be hung? Or are buttons actually obscene and need to be hidden? I think that just inspired a definition... - purpleartichokes, 2008-03-31: 18:31:00

I think that, under the circumstances described, Freud may understand! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-04-01: 00:20:00
