Boryawnagain

Created by: TJayzz

Pronunciation: Bore-yorn-a-gayn

Sentence: When Sue began to witter on for the tenth time about the new luxury hot tub she had recently purchased, Rob started the usual boryawnagain stance.

Etymology: Bore(cause to feel weary and uninterested by being dull or tedious) + Yawn(open one's mouth wide and inhale deeply due to tiredness or boredom) + Again(repeat) = Boryawnagain
