Feelastoplast

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fee lasto plast

Sentence: His wife Mary had bravely and quietly undergone 24 hours of painful labor before having a C-section to deliver their 12 pound son. She never cried or let the pain overcome her or distress those around her. The breathing from the Lamaze classes had certainly helped. Her husband Harry, on the other hand, carried on something fierce when the nurse had helped him remove the feelastoplast from his arm, where blood samples had been extracted. His screams were chilling and continued on long after the bandage was gone. This, as Mary's Mother had quickly pointed out, was why the men did not get pregnant and carry on the Human Race.

Etymology: Feel (Sense through touch;examine (a body part) by palpation) & Elastoplast (an elastic adhesive bandage for covering cuts or wounds)
