Invisablitations

Created by: abrakadeborah

Pronunciation: In-vis-a-bli-tay-shuns

Sentence: Carla was quite the strange one. She often times would speak of "invisablitations" of seeing her cat fly at night and apparitions of things flying around during the day. Nobody ever believed her as she was constantly dodging invisible objects and swatting into thin air at objects nobody else could see. She would scream out loud for no apparent reason...No wonder she thought her cat could fly as it would often leap across the room! Poor Tomcat was constantly startled by Carla's "invisablitationous" outbursts that he was leaping from place to place to get away from her. Carla's best friend Harry often stood in calmness as he watched her scream and swat at invisible objects.

Etymology: Invisible & abilities in action; to flail arms,snort,scream and act out at unknown objects flying around.
