Slumberumples

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: slum ber rum pulls

Sentence: On the morning after their honeymoon started, Wilma awoke with a bad case of the slumberumples...big red lines all over her face. Her groom, Will, thought it cute and endearing. Wilma ran to the bathroom and spent over an hour doing her ablutions. When she emerged, her smooth, creamy complexion had returned. She turned off the lights before she joined him in bed each evening. It took Will many years to realize that Wilma's skin had slumberumples 24/7 and during her morning routine, she was actually applying enough war paint and concealer to hide the awful truth. Yes, she had been born with what looked like a road map imbedded on the largest organ in her body...

Etymology: Slumber (be asleep)& Rumples (become wrinkled or crumpled or creased;to gather something into small wrinkles or folds)
