Sentence: When Penelope arranged to meet her blind date, Pierre, at Le Cafe Bistro, she was very glad that she had arranged an amourgency call with her best friend Brigitte. Brigitte was to call ten minutes into their meeting and Penelope could use the opportunity to abort the mission if her date disappointed. The foul aroma which permeated Pierre and his clothing made that ten minutes seem like an eternity. Luckily she was saved by the bell and escaped from Pepe LePew just in time...eyes watering, breath held, gorge rising...need to throw away clothes and scrub down quickly...eewwww!

Etymology: Amour (French word for "love"... an intense feeling of affection;a usually secretive or illicit sexual relationship) & Emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)
