Impulsonality

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: Im pulse SON a li tee

Sentence: His impulsonality remained constant through his adulthood. At any social gathering he’d end up laughing hysterically, uncontrollably, at the funny mistakes of others. His laughing spasms were so unique and funny in themselves, friends and family would deliberately set them going by telling one of the well-known stories. Attempts to calm and quiet his raucous laughing fits were all unsuccessful as his laughs would turn into angry roars. His roars were as loud as his laughs, but frightening. It was best to keep him happy.

Etymology: From: IMPULSE and PERSONALITY.

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /ha-BICH-oo-eyt/

Sentence: A scorpion is standing on a riverbank trying to find a way across, when a fox happens along. The scorpion asks the fox to carry him on his back across the river.

The fox asks, "Why would you do that? Now both of us will die." The scorpion said, "Don't habitchuate — it's just my nature." — Variation on a fable (possibly of Native American origin)

Etymology: Play on the word: Habituate - to accustom by frequent repetition or prolonged exposure (from Latin, habitus "condition, demeanor") & Bitch [the verb] - to complain about; gripe (from Old English, bicce)
