Paramourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: para merjin see

Sentence: When Tara met Gord, it was love at first fright. She had arranged for her best friend, May, to call her to interrupt the date if it was a paramourgency...and sadly it was. Gord neither looked as good as his photo, displayed the same characteristics as his profile, nor smelled especially fresh, even if his moves were. She knew if she had to save herself, she would have to resort to divirginary tactics. It was definitely time for a May Day call to come in!

Etymology: Paramour (a woman's lover) & Emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)
