Neckonize

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: nek o nize

Sentence: Bernie had a problem in that he failed to neckonize any girl (okay, both of them) he had ever had a previous fling with and certainly could never remember their names. You'd think that might pose a problem if he re-encountered the girl later and might feel a bit awkward. Truth is, any girl who ever did take up with him would never do it again and duck out of his line of vision. So, he never had to worry about remembering their names. Sad and lonely, that was Bernie.

Etymology: Ne -(Negative; Not) & Neck (to kiss, embrace, or fondle with sexual passion)& Recognize(be fully aware or cognizant of)
