Hurternity: /hurt turn itee/ Cameron's papercut had gone on for a hurternity. No sooner did it seem to be healing, when she would reopen it again. It did not help that she worked as a file clerk and had to shuffle hundreds of files and papers a day. She would bleed on files and bandages refused to stay on the cuts. She was beginning to think that the only way she could ever heal it would be to go on hurternity leave... Etymology: Hurt (cut,injury,wound,feel pain) & Eternity (a seemingly endless time interval) Created by: Nosila.

Microburden: /MY-crow-BIRD-uhn/ Dr Desmond's waiting room was crowded with the usual assortment of whining hypochondriacs, industrial accident victims, bursting lacerations and a gentleman who lost a crowbar fight at the local pub. When Molly explained her MICROBURDEN to Desmond, he was strangely unsympathetic. Using a scanning electron microscope, the doctor finally located Molly's invisaffliction, and predictably prescribed Motrin and bedrest. Molly explained that her stinging woundlet was like a tiny little albatross that nagged her and made life intolerable, but Desmond inexplicably refused to administer morphine for such a piddling complaint. Molly would just have to face life with her MICROBURDEN, and use this ugly incident as a sentence to be savored on the website..."Verbotomy". Etymology: MICRO+BURDEN=MICROBURDEN.....MICRO: prefix meaning tiny or trifling.....BURDEN: something oppressive or worrisome; Middle English, from Old English byrthen; akin to Old English beran to carry.....alternatatively: MYCROBURDEN Created by: metrohumanx.
