Petriflect

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: PET-ra-flekt

Sentence: When Bob described his pet "Phido" as a sanguined-eyed, silky-skinned sweetie, craving to be cuddled, Roxie couldn't wait to meet him.

Not wishing to offend Bob she smiled and petriflected, as if nothing was a hiss. However when Phido sidled up to her and slipped inside her blouse, she feared she was about to be cleopatronized. Bob told her not to worry, saying: "That's his way of showing you that he likes you."
