Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: rain-blow

Sentence: Jim was always chasing rainblows. Everytime he thought his dreams would come true, something always managed to blow it.

Etymology: rainbow: "I'm always Chasing Rainbows" was a song by Harry Carroll in 1918 about an optimistic person who was constantly pushed back by the events of life, and was a popular song of the time. It was featured in a 1941 movie sung by Judy Garland. It was also recorded by Bing Crosby, Perry Como and other crooners of the era. It was also one of my grandmother's favorite songs. + Blow: 1) a sudden unexpected event 2) slang - "that blows" -- something that sucks or is a bummer

Dayscreaming

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: dāskrēming

Sentence: His mother always told him, \"be careful what you wish for\" and now he knew why. Ever since he had taken up boxing to get in shape Sidney would daydream about being good enough to go pro. Now, sitting in the ring across from the champ, his daydreaming had turned into dayscreaming. It was a full-fledged daymare. Sure, it was just a charity exhibition match but the look in the champ\'s eyes when Sidney teased him about his pink trunks left him hoping that his teeth were well anchored.

Etymology: daydreaming (a series of pleasant thoughts that distract one\'s attention from the present) + screaming (give a long, loud, piercing cry or cries expressing excitement, great emotion, or pain)
