Masqueraid

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: mas-kuh-raid

Sentence: Agnes peered out at the world through narrowed eyes shielded behind cat's eye eyeglasses. She shifted her weight and raised her copy of Atlas Shrugged a little higher, so it could easily be seen over the divider between the booths in the coffee shop. Pretending to stare intensely at her masqueraid novel, she instead glowered out at all of the other patrons, the sheep, who sat there reading their John Grisham tripe or their Danielle Steele fluff. No one had the good taste thus far to come over and compliment her on her sublime taste in literature, so she surreptitiously slipped her copy of "On the Road" out of her oversized shag carpet purse, split the book open around the halfway mark, and began her charade anew.

Etymology: masquerade - a social gathering invovling people wearing masks or costumes + aid - something that assists in a task
