Payaway

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: pay-away

Sentence: When Roger got home and looked in the back of the minivan he realized that the groceries he bought for poker night with the boys were left behind, probably in a shopping cart in the store's parking lot. Chances were good that they were gone. The guys would certainly get a laugh at him. He'd have to come up with a believable story to save face. "I'll tell them that I bought the stuff on payaway," he thought, "that will buy me enough time to get back to the store."

Etymology: pay: purchase, buy + away: gone (wordplay on layaway -- to pay for things over time)

Forgetmeshop

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: for get me shop

Sentence: Hal decided the best way to help Lily avoid to forgetmeshop was to attend all outlets, malls, boutiques and markets with her. He would offer her brazen reminders of the time she’d left a posy of brightly-coloured shopping bags at the store, along with their daughter Violet. (Lily’s excuse was that she left the child to tend the flowery bags while she decided whether or not she really needed the goods...or was she simply bingbuying)? Hal would have none of it! He diligently tended to her, offering encouragement and water, hoping she’d remember her items. One day, he would get her a bouquet of Forget-me-nots to celebrate the happy shopping trips when they arrived home together remembering their purchases.

Etymology: From the flower: "Forget-me-not" and shop.

Buygoner

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: by gon er

Sentence: Edward was a buygoner. Unlike your average man, Edward shopped till he dropped and forgot what he purchased. There were bags all over the house, full of stuff he thought would make great gifts for someone. The only problem was he forgot what he bought for who and ended up buying them something else. He loved shopping and enjoyed it until the Visa bills came in. Then he'd have a slight jag of buyer's remorse, pay the minimum and set off again next time for another round of rampant consumerism. He knew he needed help one warm July night when he tried to find out what was causing the absolutely gross smell in his car. He thought he had run over a piquant rodent and it had left DNA on his tire. But no, when he finally opened the trunk and went through the bags he had stored inside, he found the culprit. Oh no, he thought, it's Mozart...that deal of a fresh turkey he'd bought in December was rapidly decomposing in his trunk!

Etymology: Buy (To purchase something) & Bygone (past events to be put aside;well in the past; former) & Goner (a person in desperate straits; someone doomed)

Oh that smell that makes you wish it was a byegoner, too! Clever create! - silveryaspen, 2009-04-13: 13:44:00
