Sentence: From the smell, Ron thought that the kitchen sink had backed up again, and he was making toward the closet with the plunger, when Bridget ran into him in the hall and said, "You do remember that my mother's coming over today, right? Oh, and I'm making lutefisk — it's a Swedish delicacy." We'd be having stewage for dinner tonight.

Etymology: Blend of 'stew' - to cook by simmering or slow boiling (Middle English, stewen "to bathe in a steam bath") & 'sewage' - liquid and solid waste carried off in sewers or drains (from Anglo-Fr. sewere "to drain off water")
