Inadvertentectomyangst

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: in ad vert ent ekt omee angst

Sentence: Although it bothered her a lot, Hilary Hack had no choice but to do it. Her Hockey Star cheating boyfriend, Randy Gote had been caught with his pants down, again. She had warned him of the consequences the last time, but apparently he did not take her seriously. When she had caught him, she revved up the old Black & Decker in a fit of jealous rage and told him afterwords that the only Hockey Team he could try out for now was the Castor Raiders. Still, she was overcome with a feeling of inadvertentectomyangst...because his days of body-checking and stick-handling were over.

Etymology: Inadvertent (accidental;by chance) & -ectomy (suffix for surgical removal/incision of something to eliminate it) & Angst (an acute but unspecific feeling of anxiety)

Shredderdreader

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: shredərdredər

Sentence: Several years ago Millie was shredding her usual batch of junk mail when she spotted Ed McMahon’s smiling face in the teeth of the paper chomper. Too late! Convinced that she had lost the chance of a lifetime to be a millionaire, she has become a shredderdreader, refusing to throw away any mail. The accumulation now occupies every nook of her small apartment. She eats only cold meals because lighting the stove would surely start a fire. The microwave was crushed by a pile of paper several months ago. Things are suddenly looking up for Millie. She has the opportunity to make some serious coin being featured in the new reality show, Hoarders. Thanks, Ed.

Etymology: shredder (a machine or other device for shredding something, esp. documents) + dreader(someone who anticipates with great apprehension or fear)
