Circumvenshun

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sir kum ven shun

Sentence: Wally hated people bugging him at home. It did not matter whether it was on the phone, e-mail or at the door, he had the act of circumvenshun down to a fine art. People thought he was eccentric or occupied with some big hush-hush project. The reality was that Wally hated missing a moment of his daytime dramas. Yes, he watched every soap opera on the tube, every day. One could say that Wally was Young & Restless, he was living the Days of Our Lives to the fullest, his tv friends were like All My Children. He was not Bold & Beautiful, but if he had One Life to Live, As the World Turns, he was going to end up in General Hospital if he did not get some exercise!

Etymology: Circumvention (the act of evading) & Shun (avoid and stay away from deliberately; stay clear of)
