Pronunciation: Less-tur-byoo-tee-rush

Pronunciation: free-lay-tion

Sentence: The sense of freelation that Ross experienced as he left the building was exhilarating. Someone once told him that a person can say anything they want on their last day of work, and he did. Carrying the remnants of the last 5 years in his little box, he had no doubt that with his special skills and exceptional talent he could find work in no time at all. There was another McDonald's just down the street. Surely they needed an experienced burger flipper. And if they weren't hiring, there was a Wendy's, a Burger King, a Sonic, and a Dairy Queen within walking distance.

Etymology: free: not imprisoned, having liberty, to not be under the control of the will or obligation to another + elation: an exhilarating phychological state of pride and optimism, and absence of depression

So many good words already. I'll have to think about this after I exit MPOW, and head for the carpark. (Only vehiciousexiting going on at this time of the day) I wonder if there will be even a minor thrill as I'm only leaving for a long weekend.

I heard this one years ago but I can't let the day go without passing it on to people who like funny word combos - Today is Star Wars Day - "May the 4th be with you"!!

Maybe we should do a Star Wars week...
