Pronunciation: RID-ee-um

Sentence: Every time Hugh met a woman, he could not help but stop to smell her hair. Despite numerous awkward encounters, a couple restraining orders, and a very quiet love life he refused to stop, saying “I can’t help it. I’m just a sniffer.” But after the unfortunate incident with the black-belt transvestite, his friends had no choice but to put Hugh through a quick ridiom session.

Etymology: Rid (to remove) + idiom (a style that is characteristic of an individual)
