Tingalingxiety

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: tingaling-Zahy-i-tee.

Sentence: "Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call" abbamatically reperdittied inside Bob's tunestuck head. He had lost his mobile, and felt like he was in cellutary confinement. Exilophoned, he cried out, "How loud is the silence, doesn't it ever go away?" Orphoned, telereaved, he prayed that it hadn't fallen into the wrong hands. His pathetic dependence on it, together with his excessive texting and phoning, made him a chatatonic cliche, a stereotype of tingalingxiety.

Etymology: TINGALINNG: onomatopoeia for the sound of a phone & ANXIETY:troubled, uneasy, distressed.
