Trousseauohnooo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: Troose o nooo

Sentence: When Virginia inadvertantly walked into her new bedroom to change and found her new husband, Randy, messing her new satin sheets with her old friend, Jezebel, she had a trousseauohnooo moment. She had known they "knew" each other in the Biblical sense many years ago, but was incensed to see them desecrating her Granny's wedding gift to the now-not-so-happy Bride. Thinking of her Granny, she recalled the stanza to a song she used to sing: "When your Old Flame turned up at our wedding; I knew that I would be marooned; She was not there as an invited guest, but a date for the Bridegroom!"

Etymology: Trousseau (Linens and household white items that a bride-to-be saves in her hope chest prior to her marriage, many of which are gifts or (in olden times) things she had made or embroidered herself) & Oh No (Exclamation of regret, sorrow, sadness, disappointment, fear at the discovery of a sudden unpleasantness) & Oh Nooo... (Tagline of SNL's Mr. Bill when something awful was about to happen to him)
