Fingeroded

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: feVCn-gur-ode-ed

Sentence: Some folks have the "Midias touch"... well Kimberly has the hydrochloric acid touch. Maybe it was because she was heavy-handed in every sense of the word, or maybe because she used lemon juice as hand sanitizer. Whatever the reason, Kimberly's routine could be mapped through the fingeroded surfaces that enabled her daily life. These surfaces included the preset buttons of the only two radio stations she listed to while driving to work, the speed dial button calling QVC from her office phone, and the bald spot under her cat, button's, chin. "Oh, he doesn't mind," Kimberly explained "I saved him from a life of testing cosmetics. Never met a cat as obedient as Button."

Etymology: finger (you might have five of them on each hand) + eroded (worn away slowly)

Lapopecia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lap o peesh eeya

Sentence: Margo used her laptop 24-7. She took it everywhere with her...shopping;while in transit;waiting in line ups;at meals;watching tv;while visiting with people and heck, even at work. People thought she must have a very important position and could not miss a minute of contact with her office. In fact, Margo was addicted to on-line gambling and had used her laptop so much, that she had worn down all the surfaces of the keys and touchpad until her machine developed lapopecia. When her shrink saw that she was using her laptop during her therapy session, he immediately called for an intervention. He used a new treatment called a lapendectomy, where her laptop would be permanently removed. This procedure would not restore the surfaces on her laptop keys, but at least it would help staunch the fiscal hemmorraging to her bank account.

Etymology: Laptop (a portable computer small enough to use in your lap) & Alopecia (baldness;loss of hair (especially on the head) or loss of wool or feathers or covering; in humans it can result from heredity or hormonal imbalance or certain diseases or drugs and treatments)
