Getabyte

Created by: astorey

Pronunciation: get-a-bite

Sentence: Tess thought she could multitask, but alas, as with so many people, she was not as good as she thought. She would send frequent getabytes to her friends, her husband and the random work contact who was unfortunately positioned at the top of her contact list. While those close to her were able to interpret her getabytes correctly, her colleague could never figure out if Tess was hitting on him or trying to turn him into her personal concierge. Either way, he wasn't into her.

Etymology: To "get" as in both to receive and to understand+ "byte" as in the increment of data, combined to sound like gigabyte or another of the many byte words they make up these days.
