Transitdence

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tran sit dens

Sentence: Charlie rode the commuter train twice a day, everyday from his home in the burbs to his job in the city and back. It was a long monotonous ride and after he was just a few minutes underway, he would always nod off. At that point he would fall into a state of transitdence. The repetitive click of the rails hypnotized him during which point his subconcious was open to suggestion. This might explain why when he got to his destination, he would have no shoes on, or cluck like a chicken or have new facial features in felt markers, like a monocle, a villainous moustache or Clockwork-orange eye make-up. Yes, those commuter gremlins could be cruel and vandalize you and turn you into human graffiti if you didn't stay alert.

Etymology: Transcedence(the state of excelling or surpassing or going beyond usual limits; a state of being or existence above and beyond the limits of material experience) & Transit (make a passage or journey from one place to another) & Trance (a state of mind in which consciousness is fragile and voluntary action is poor or missing; a state resembling deep sleep)

this is very similar to the car driving one...all the same words apply...like tranceport and tripnosis

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-09-25: 08:38:00
Yes it's similar, but I think it would be safer to be lost in a traverie while riding on the bus, than to undergo a complete tripnosis while driving a car on/off the highway. ~ James
