Sentence: Julie liked to think of herself as a bugwhisperer. When a bug came into her house, she would try to talk to it, trying to convince it to leave peacefully. The fact that this never worked didn't seem to alter her approach. Her friends began to think her a bit buggy.

Etymology: bug (a small insect) + whisperer (one who speaks softly) A play off of the Dog Whisperer
