Shoperone

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: shop/er/one

Sentence: Eugene was so disappointed in himself. He should have known it was too good to be true. When Tiffany said, "Pick me up at 6:00 big boy, and we'll paint the town" he had no idea she just needed a ride to the mall, and a shoperone to carry her bags. You could almost see the neon sign blinking "Fool" on his forehead.

Etymology: derived from chaperone: One who accompanies and supervises

Manterval

Created by: Rhyme79

Pronunciation: mann-tuh-vawl

Sentence: Gideon had grown used to waiting outside of the changing rooms in women's shops. In fact he had learnt to almost enjoy mantervals and began to use the time more productively. Instead of spending hours on end waiting by racks of frocks staring at his shoes like he used to, he now uses being surrounded by women to his benefit. Gideon has picked up some of the most amazing make-up tips, he's learnt how to deal with period pain and can now tell the difference between shampoo and shower gel which he, like most men, previously believed were inter-changeable. The list goes on...

Etymology: Man (male adult human) + interval ( intervening period of time)
