Visagenary

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: viz ah jen ari

Sentence: Victor had visagenary skills. His ability to tell whether or not a person was lying was legendary. This skill had stood him well through his life and was very handy when dealing with the children he taught in school. He taught them that the truth was their only option, because you could never tell who had this power besides him. It helped while dating (her lips were smiling but her eyes weren't...) And he could have been a human lie detector for the CIA or FBI or the police. Victor figured as long as he had the gift, he might as well earn some money with it. That's when he started on the Celebrity Poker circuit and won millions with his visagenary talents!

Etymology: Visage (the human face; the appearance conveyed by a person's face) & Visionary (a person with unusual powers of foresight,seeing ahead; knowing in advance; foreseeing)

The poofy sleeves, the colour you least suit, the sheer unrewearability of the briddesmaid gown...why oh why do they do it? Do they really think an ugly bridesmaid outfit makes the bride look better??? Think again! - Nosila, 2008-10-17: 00:04:00
