Impulsonality

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: Im pulse SON a li tee

Attempts to calm and quiet his raucous laughing fits were all unsuccessful as his laughs would turn into angry roars. His roars were as loud as his laughs, but frightening. It was best to keep him happy.

Etymology: From: IMPULSE and PERSONALITY.
