Pronunciation: Spay-ss-shuff-el

Sentence: Mike was dreading the business trip to Paris, he knew he would have to spend the whole trip doing the spaceshuffle, due to his mean bosses booking his flight with Cheapo Airlines. He had been on a strict diet for the past week, so that he would hopefully not be quite as squashed as he was on previous occasions.

Etymology: Space(the dimensions,width and height of an area) + Shuffle(restlessly shift one's position in order to be more comfortable)
