Frigidaredevills

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: frijid der dev ills

Sentence: Frida cautiously tip-toed over to her fridge. It had been quiet all day, just the odd gurgling and chugging of the motor, nothing to be afraid of, right? She cautiously opened the white steel door covered in magnets and notices. The moment the door opened, the smell hit her like a brick. They were back... the Frigidaredevils, piled high and ready to topple out the door. Liquified salad fixings, mystery meats, passe pizza slices, green fuzzy former fruits and veggies, milk that had turned biker (bad) and numerous description-defying previous edibles. In their current state not even CSI could identify them. Enough!, decided Frida of this penicilliness! She grabbed a face mask, plastic gloves and a large garbage bag and went to town clearing out the foul fridge dwellers. The bag was sealed tightly and immediately run down to the back alley for garbage pick-up. She could swear she heard noises coming from the bag and they weren't that of the Glad Man! When she had done, she cleaned and sprayed the now bare interior and placed her fresh groceries in their new temporary home. How long before these innocents would turn on her and become Frigidaredevills themselves?

Etymology: Frigidaire (Brand of refrigerator) & Dare Devils (reckless impetuous irresponsible;presumptuously daring) & Ills (resulting in suffering or adversity; an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)
