Lanepain

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: layn payn

Sentence: It never failed, thought Mario, just when I am in a hurray, I get stuck behind some lanepain. He feels that it is his duty to observe the posted limit, even though he is the only one in traffic to do so. You never see him when you are not in a hurray yourself...just when you need to get somewhere really quickly. Well, if this slug didn't move over soon, Mario knew he would have to take desperate action, even if he had to drive right over his car. Afterall, he was not going to be lanepained on this first lap and lose the entire Indy 500!

Etymology: lane (a way or road or a well-defined track or path,like in traffic) & pain (emotional distress; a fundamental feeling that people try to avoid or something or someone that causes trouble; a source of unhappiness or to cause emotional anguish or make miserable)

Accelerangst

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: ax-sell-er-angst

Sentence: Philip was in a hurry, which seemed like what 99% of the suburbanites were most of the time. He just moved farther outside his comfort zone of freeways and fast moving cars to the fringes where the slow rural life abuts the encroaching planned neighborhoods. He thought having a bigger house and a lawn to mow would be a step up for him. Little did he know he would now be butting heads, or bumpers, with wandering livestock or an occassional combine. However now he seemed to find himself accelerangst up behind slow moving pickups, shaking his fist and downing a few swigs of Mylanta in one hand while honking his horn with the other.

Etymology: accelerate + angst

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Good word! The sentence reminds me of what I've soon got to deal with - the inevitable chicken(s) crossing the road and the farmer on the tractor who is oblivious to any cars behind him. - purpleartichokes, 2008-04-07: 18:08:00
