Sentence: Celia rushed home at night, anxious to see her three cats. They were friends to her like no one else; they always listened to her worries with what was apparent sympathy. They were calm and patient and loving, just like she wished her human friends could be. She had taken to talking to them from the minute she got up – even while she was in the shower - because she knew they’d be alone all day, lost without her. At the last possible minute, when she had just barely enough time to make it to work, she left. As soon as the door closed, one of the male cats always turned to the other one and rolled his eyes. “I know. I know,” the second cat would always say (it had turned into a running joke between them) “what a freakin’ fretubrute.”

Etymology: From the Transylvanian, fret, a diminutive of Frederick; from the LeHigh, tu bru, meaning literally "please bring me a couple of bottles of whatever tasty fermented starch-based hop-flavored beverage is most readily available"; and from the Buckwheat, te, an abbreviated version of "otay," meaning "everything is going to be just fine, sir."
