Raisinumb

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: rāzənnəm

Sentence: Matt loved his new massaging showerhead. He spent such a long time in the shower that he was totally raisinumb. He didn't even notice that the hot water had run out or that he was turning blue. He only snapped out of it when the sound of his chattering teeth broke the drone of the pulsating water jet. Tomorrow he is going for prunumb.

Etymology: raisin (a partially dried grape) + numb (deprived of the power of sensation) prunumb (just like raisinumb but with prune-sized wrinkles)

Wetternity

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: wet tern atee

Sentence: Everyone in the household had to get up earlier now. This was so they could get to use the house's only bathroom before Kara, the teenager, got into it. When she was in there, it seemed like a wetternity to any poor soul waiting their turn. Her mother always wondered that before she turned 13, Kara simply splashed water on her face and ran out the door and had to be reminded to shower or bathe, at least every other day. Since the fateful day she turned into a hormone-on-wheels, she took endless showers in the morning and after school and a long bath at night. The irony was that although she alone was responsible for the surge in water consumption in her home, she belonged to the school's Water Conservation Club. Wait until she has to pay the utility bills, often grumbled her father. This was the same girl who was staunchly anti-litter in public, but who's bedroom carpet had not been seen in years for ankle-high debris. Teenagers, go figure!

Etymology: Wetter (more soaked in liquids, especially water, than something else) & Eternity (for all time, forever and a day; time without end; a seemingly endless period of time)
