karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: JEH louse

If she didn't take the call, he would "casually" say, "Hmmm... I wonder who was calling?" He would pretend to be doing tasks nearby whenever she was on e-mail, but she knew he was really trying to read over her shoulder. For a while she had thought his possessiveness was sweet, but now she realized he was just a jealouse. It was the same age-old story, except now with technology added.

Etymology: jealous + louse

Sentence: We told him that his significant smother wasn't really controlling enough to constitute an amogarchy, but it was just a foma.

Etymology: from amo- (romantic love) and -archy (government)

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Significant smother works better than amogarchy, which I'd have as "a system of rule by lovers"- a truly scary notion. Still, the sentence alone is worth a vote. - Bulletchewer, 2007-04-17: 13:17:00

Thanks, and I agree that "significant smother" is better, but I never like having to cram two-word terms into a one-word entry. - ErWenn, 2007-04-17: 14:05:00
