Nodnodacquaintance

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: nod nod akwain tans

Sentence: By day, Jill was a mild-mannered accountant and Jack was a mild-mannered sales manager. But no one in their office realized that they had a nondnodacquaintance. They appeared casual and aloof to each other at work. But by night, they were red-hot lovers and neither of their spouses realized that their collegiality actually went from the boardroom to the bedroom. Their clandestine relationship may have had something to do with the fact that they worked for a very religious publisher who had a no tolerance policy towards extra-marital trysts, punishable by termination of both parties.

Etymology: Nodding Acquaintance (someone known to you in passing;informal relationship) & Nod Nod (wink, wink, say no more, nuff said, know what you mean, a wink's as good as a nod to a blind horse...credit Monty Python...meaning secret, hint)
