Pronunciation: in/ter/fret

Sentence: Having spotted Tiffany's email on Loretta's Blackberry while she got up to get her Latte, Josh made a point to memorize it. Tiffany was the girl of his dreams, though to her he didn't exist. Later that night while on the computer, just to see what it felt like, he put in her email addy and began typing as if they had just spent the most passionate evening together. He got so into it that when done, instead of hitting the X to delete, he hit SEND out of habit! He went into instant interfret, began sweating profusely and decided he would claim it was just an assignment due in his psychology class, and thank Tiffany for helping him with his grade. Her "reaction of disgust" "was just the A" he was "looking for," he said in response to her disgusted email.

Etymology: internet + fret

zxvasdf Coincidentally, as he was in the throes of his interfret, Tiffany entered the coffee shop, engaged with her Blackberry. Josh's seat became a puddle of sweat. She took him by the arm and walked to the back of the shop, where the restrooms were located, and for the next five minutes strange sounds emanated from that region. - zxvasdf, 2008-10-29: 09:10:00
