Decorat

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: DEK o rat

Sentence: Val Egurl was that special form of mallrat, the "Decorat." She obsessively purchased every holiday-themed item that she deemed to be "cute." She could no longer park in her garage because it was stuffed full of boxes, carefully labeled and color-coded for each major and minor holiday. She festooned both her house and herself with decorations for the relevant occasion. She even had lights up on her house year-round. But not just any lights - these were multicolored and synchronized to music, AND both the colors and the music corresponded to the holiday. On the Fourth of July, the lights were red, white, and blue, and the Star-Spangled Banner and other patriotic songs played. On Halloween, the lights were orange and black, and spooky music emanated. Not to mention Christmas - well, you get the idea.

Etymology: decorate + rat
