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.

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)
