Pronunciation: jig-uh-MAWR-tis

Sentence: "Nana! nana!-where are you?" I cried out. The door of Bob's and my bedroom was for some reason closed; but pushing against it I forced it open. My nana lay on the ground. A horrible feeling came over me, - I thought she was dead. On bending down I could find no injury, and I found that she still was breathing, so I trusted that she had only fainted. I sprinkled her face with water, and she shortly after heaved a sigh and opened her eyes. "Is this a hideous dream?" she asked; "and why are Bob and Trixie here wrapped only in the satin sheets I gave you for a wedding present!" "There's nothing to be alarmed about, nana," I answered. "Bob has gone to work and Trixie is holidaying in Far North Queensland" "Oh! go and look for yourself," she said, " I give her FNQ!" Assured that she had fully recovered, I hurried out only to find Bob and Trixie, on all fours and still wrapped in the satin sheets, their clothes in their hands, making their way to the front door. That indeed for me was a miserable sight and jigamortis set in. Nan did her utmost to comfort me. "You haven't got anything to worry about: you better off without them!" exclaimed nan. "So here's a pen and paper; just write a note to them, and get them to send back the satin sheets!"
