Superflooziety

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: soo per floo zee it tee

Sentence: She'd been in the Game for a while and had seen her fortunes take a tumble over the past few years. And yet, each evening she spent hours dolling herself up and putting on provocative clothes to go out and do her job. Twila had earned the nickname Twilight Twila from her co-workers, the cops and the johns she had known. She walked in the area known as the Strip and plied her trade. But for the last few years, business was not booming, if fact many nights none of her gentlemen friends came calling. Still, she got on her see-through blouses,her mini skirts and her war paint before she hit the streets. She walked and walked every night to no avail. The other girls got attention, but never her anymore. Twila was a superflooziety, an underemployed hooker. She was beginning to wonder if her age was a factor...maybe she should start living off those government pension cheques she had been getting in the mail lately. Afterall, she wasn't likely to get a gold watch for her 45 years in this business! And besides, they did not make support hose in a fishnet style...

Etymology: Superfluous (more than is needed, desired, or required) & Floozie (a prostitute who attracts customers by walking the streets)
