Doomzdaze

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: doomz-dayz

Sentence: It was 1971 and Inertia was too frightened to go out of doors. Doomzdaze, as well as the haze of smoke from a certain dried flower, hung over her like a cloud--a radioactive UFO-shaped cloud. Lately, even the indoors was terrifying. The Paul Klee prints on the walls were alive and talking to her. "Go to the desert," they said. "Wait for the flying saucers to pick you up." Oh, to have the strength to pack the dried apricots and brown rice in the van! Maybe the Ouija board was right: California is falling into the ocean!

Etymology: From DOOMSDAY, a Day of Judgement + DAZE, to stun, stupefy
