Nickannoy

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: nik-A-noy

Sentence: Friday, a file in the finger; Tuesday, a needle in the knuckle and, on Sunday, a graze on the glabella. Mishaps menaced Bob with monotony and nickannoys were second nature to him. Finally, worried that he would develop nickanoia, he told himself it was time to knock these needless, niggling nickannoyances on the head!

Etymology: Nick: a small cut & annoy; to irritate, esp in minor but continuing way.

Sentence: Cameron's papercut had gone on for a hurternity. No sooner did it seem to be healing, when she would reopen it again. It did not help that she worked as a file clerk and had to shuffle hundreds of files and papers a day. She would bleed on files and bandages refused to stay on the cuts. She was beginning to think that the only way she could ever heal it would be to go on hurternity leave...
