Coffeebreakout

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: CAW fee BRAKE owt

Sentence: Each morning at 9:55, right before the boss gave his daily briefing to the high muckety-mucks, Joe managed to escape for his coffeebreakout. That way, he was able to avoid his coffee-loving co-workers, who were too busy lying low in case the boss was in a bad mood that day. As an added benefit, he escaped the notice of his "superiors," who would randomly assign "leadership opportunities," otherwise known as extra work, to whomever they stumbled upon on their way into the meeting. Sometimes Joe drank his coffee out back with Virginia, who liked to get away around that time for her smokebreakout.

Etymology: coffee break + breakout (escape from confinement)

Ninjitsup

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /nin-JIT-suhp/

Sentence: Walter glanced up at the sound of Doreen's chair squeaking as she sat down at the desk across from him. She regarded him with a smug expression, peering over the manila folder she seemed to have been studying. But something else was odd — there was steam rising from behind the folder. Grinning, Doreen lifted her freshly refilled coffee mug from behind the folder, took a sip, and set it on her desk. She was becoming very skilled in the art of Ninjitsup, almost as good as Walter himself. Filled with pride, he inclined his head toward Doreen and said quietly, "Now you are ready, my child. I can teach you no more."

Etymology: Ninjitsu - a Japanese martial art that emphasizes stealth in movement and camouflage (Japanese, nin- endure & -jutsu technique) + Sup - to take liquid into the mouth in small quantities, as by spoonfuls or sips (from Middle English, suppen "to drink")
