Verboticism: Repeelant


Created by: astorey

Definition: n., The fear of eating the skins of fruits, vegetables, or small animals. v., To worry about saving one's skin while chewing on a rind, peel, or pelt.

Pronunciation: ree-peel-ant

Sentence: Nadia could still see her father picking the skin off a baked chicken, slurping it into his mouth and smacking his lips. Ew. While Nadia tried to blame her repeelant attitude on her father alone, she did, at times, acknowledge her own role. In a three-month stint as a server at TGI Fridays, Nadia served enough Loaded Potato Skins (tm) to make her repeelant complete and irreversible.

Etymology: Repellant combined with peel.
