Apustics

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: a/pyu/stiks

Sentence: Heather will never forget the day Grandma volunteered to accompany her 8th grade class on the field trip. She had no idea. Had she known, she would have skipped school for sure. It was embarrassing enough that Grams brought her headphones and WALKMAN (!) for the bus ride, but her apustics were humiliating.

Etymology: Acoustic + P.U. (as in stinky musAK)

It's a good thing the portable 8-track player was never invented. Poor Grams!
