Magnetexism

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mag net ex ism

Sentence: Dewey Wanter saw his ex Sophia for the first time after their messy break-up at a cocktail party at the Physics Faculty. She hung on the arm and every word of the handsome and urbane Dr.Axel Eration. Sophia had apparently gotten over Dewey long before he got over her. She looked radiant and the whole time they had been together, Dewey never felt as attracted to her as he did now. The magnetexism he felt for her was stronger than at any time during their courtship. Was it because forbidden fruit seems sweeter or that a fine diamond looks more sparkly in a gorgeous setting? In this case, that setting would be the arms of the rugged Dr. Axel. Was this a theory that Dewey wanted to hypothesize about or was he just fission to have a reason to have an Axel to grind?

Etymology: Magnet (a characteristic that provides pleasure and attracts)& Ex (former spouse/love interest) & Ism (a belief)
