Banegation

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Bay-neg-ay-shun

Sentence: David's feet itched like crazy, his socks always wet with perspiration and his shoes stank. He mentioned it in passing to his doctor but didn't take in the bit about Athlete's Foot or how his constant use of running shoes and nylon socks made it worse. The word "fungus" was all that he took in, since his fabulous race-trained body could have no disease or imperfection, nor could he believe his actions were contradictory to any part of his health. His housemate accused him of disaffliction and poor foot hygiene but David was intent on banegation, having convinced himself that the doctor had said it WASN'T Athlete's Foot.. Lah-de-dah-agnosis!

Etymology: Bane - badness, annoyance, poison. Negation - deny, disavow, disbelieve. So much denial around here it's Nihillnesstic!
