Sentence: Anne is usually quite meticulous with her appearance. She spends a fair amount of time in the morning getting her hair just right. It doesn't require tips from Sigmund Freud to pick out her bad-mood days. The ponytelltale sends co-workers scurrying in every direction but in her path. If all she has done is cram her locks into a scrunchie the world better look out.

Etymology: ponytail (an arrangement of the hair in a long lock drawn tightly against the back of the head and cinched so as to hang loosely) + telltale (a thing serving to reveal or disclose something)
