Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: jerry-attic-wear

Sentence: Kim climbed the ladder in search of geriatticwear from her grandmother's old trunk because it was considered campy and hip. She found some tie-dye shirts, torn jeans, granny glasses and peace signs.

It was truly regeneration -- everything old becomes new again to the next generation.

Etymology: geriatric: old, obsolescent, worn out + attic: a place or room in the roof of a house used to store old articles of clothing, toys and furniture + wear: outfit, ensemble
