Sentence: Tony is an active, if slightly paunchy, dad. He plays with the kids. He even rides his bike a couple days a week. A strange affliction hits him when household chores are mentioned. He immediately comes down with acute vigormortis, a condition where all energy drains from his body to the point that he can barely lift a finger. The cure comes as quickly as it manifests as soon as the chore is complete or even assigned to someone else.

Etymology: vigor (healthy physical or mental energy or power; vitality) + rigor mortis (the stiffening of the body after death)
