Sentence: Latte Kafeen swung by the local coffee bar on the way to work each morning for her usual double double decaf mocha machato frothy made with brown cane sugar and skim milk. It was tasty, but took about ten minutes to create by the time all the steaming and foaming and brewing was complete and cost eight bucks. One morning when running late and a bit broke, she opted for a plain small coffee ($1) at the local convenience store. Of course, that was when she ran smack into Christa the Barista from her usual java purveyor out on the street. Latte's feeble fumbling was a poor atttempt to hide the brand name on her cup and instead served to badvertise her guilt. She never returned to the fancy coffee bar after that, lest revenge was put upon her defection in the form of a foreign and icky substance in her cup.

Etymology: Bad (not good;keenly sorry or regretful;nonstandard) & Advertise (make publicity for;call attention to)

Years of coffealty to went out the window when it came to her; even fear of dreg-radation couldn't stand up against love.
