Created by: artr

Celibaspree

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /SEL-uh-buh-spree/

Sentence: Donald had now been married for six years — the 'honeymoon' period was long over — and his wife no longer looked for excuses to spend time with him; quite the opposite, in fact. Having little else to occupy his attention, he spent most of his spare time in the garage restoring his old Mustang. Once he got into it, he found all sorts of extra parts, tools and accessories he could buy for the car. Donald went on a celibaspree, buying new spoilers, chrome valve covers, and new seats for Rose's birthday... Rose was the name of Donald's Mustang, not his wife, (he'd been so busy with the car, he'd forgotten his wife's birthday this year).

Etymology: Celibacy - abstention from sexual relations (from L. cælibatus "state of being unmarried") + Spree - a period, spell, or bout of indulgence; e.g. a shopping spree (alteration of Fr. esprit "lively")
