Tarryorist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tary or ist

Sentence: Jim was a very busy man. He worked hard at work and when he came home, he did some more work from home. He was usually plugged into his laptop, his cell phone and his Blackberry. But today he worked even harder than usual. He was driven and focussed on results. The only fly in his corporate ointment was his wife, Marcia. She was being a particularly annoying, demanding tarryorist today. She lingered around waiting for him to get off his phone and pouted, lollygagged, lingered, loitered and tried to distract him. She whined and pulled on his clothes and tried every trick up her sleeve to get him to stop working today. The harder he tried to ignore her, the even harder she tried to get his attention. He knew it must seem childish to an onlooker for him to keep pretending he was indispensible to his job and for her to keep acting so overbearing. But he had his reasons...two of them. Yes, his in-laws-from-hell were due to arrive at any moment for their monthly 2 week visit from out of town. He was just trying to put off Marcia's acts of tarryorism for as long as humanly possible. In the battle of wills, he was about to become a prisoner of war, without the benefits of the terms of the Geneva Convention.

Etymology: tarry (be near or hang about or wait around) & terrorist ( formidable person who uses terror inspiring methods or coercion to get what they want)
