Decreednicey

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dek reed ny see

Sentence: When Gerald went to the Social Mixer, he was stunned to run into Velma after all this time. When they had been married, she had been a housewife, with no fashion flair or poise. In fact the beautiful bride he had met in high school and married ended up being a boring, one dimensional frumpy woman. That was when he had a mad affair with his secretary, Lola. When Velma found out, she moved out and sued him for divorce...he was stunned and it cost him a bundle for his indiscretion. Now here she was, slim, attractive, well dressed and practically oozing sex appeal. In fact, he decreednicey! when he saw her. He also could not fail to notice the hunky guy she was with, who was drooling over her and with whom she was clearly smitten. With more red wine in him than actual courage, Gerald went up to them and told her she looked great. She thanked him for opening her eyes and giving her the money to move on and get a better, more glamourous life. At that point the song blaring over the system was Cher singing, "If I could turn back Time..."

Etymology: Decree nisi( a decree issued on a first petition for divorce; becomes absolute at some later date) & Decreed (decided with authority) & Nice (pleasant or pleasing or agreeable in nature or appearance)
