Amourgency

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: a moor jen see

Sentence: Muriel thought there really ought to be a law against the lies people said about themselves over the Internet. Like her date tonight. He said his name was Mel Gibson (and that picture of a younger Mel Gibson on his site was really misleading). It turns out his name was Smell Gibson and that was the name his biker gang had given him. There were other clues: he was single (because his wife had kicked him out); had a career (as a criminal); financially secure (since his pogey had kicked in); loved home cooking (as opposed to prison food);liked to go for long walks (since he'd lost his license);loved children (had several in various cities);and seeking female companionship (by the hour). Muriel had arranged for an amourgency phone call from her best friend Lisa if this meeting turned out to be disastrous. Come on Lisa, hurry up and make the darn call...before Muriel's picture ended up on a milk carton!

Etymology: amour (love; a secret or illicit relationship) & emergency (a sudden unforeseen crisis (usually involving danger) that requires immediate action)

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: para merjin see

Sentence: When Tara met Gord, it was love at first fright. She had arranged for her best friend, May, to call her to interrupt the date if it was a paramourgency...and sadly it was.
