Blackburial

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: blak bery all

Sentence: Shauna never went anywhere without her Blackberry, her cellphones and her laptop. We were never sure why she thought she was so important that she had to be in constant contact with everyone she ever met. Face to face discussions with her were rare,and not without her needing to respond to every beep, text or call. She called it multi-tasking, we called it blackburial. Her only connection with other humans was through these electronic gadgets. She would lock herself away for hours on end in her office and click and text people. One day she was asked (on Blackberry) why she kept so many devices going at once. Without a hint of irony, she said it was because she loved dealing with people!

Etymology: blackberry (communication device, which apparently is very addictive) & burial (being covered in something)
