Discomboptimist

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Diss-com-bop-tim-ist

Sentence: His head still spinning from the accident, David was astonished to hear Sarah pull sepulchritude from their situation and admire the pretty rainbow in the spilled oil. He thought at first she must have a head injury and be delirious but then remembered the annoying pollyannarchy she displayed under stress which made her a relentless discomboptimist. He wasn't sure yet if it was charmingly childlike awe or a quixotic escape from reality, but that pretty rainbow better not come any closer or he would discombandon her!

Etymology: Discombobulate - cause disarray, disturb/ance, disrupt; Optimist - always look on the bright side of life! Dee-dum, deedum deedum deedum!
