Regretulence

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: re gret yu lens

Sentence: Sarah hated eating with her brother Sid, as he delighted in torturing her with his bad manners. He'd make bizarre digestive noises at the table and then apologize insincerely for his actions. This regretulence was really annoying, as he would always blame their poor dog, lying under the table. This was also galling as the dog was never in the house at meal times!

Etymology: Regret (be sorry) & Flatulence (a state of excessive gas in the alimentary canal)
