karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: skin si TIV i tee

Sentence: Hy Pokondriak had a rare psychological skinsitivity to eating any kind of fruit or vegetable covering or animal skin. It wasn't merely that the taste was unappeeling; he pelt so terrified that he had to run and hide. Even pie crust was a little scary.
