Sentence: Sheila had issues again today. Now on her seventh gin and tonic, she made the mistake of emailing everyone she was angry at or felt had in some way slighted her during the past ten years. She was totally gincommunicado for several hours until she fell asleep at her keyboard. Everytime this happened she would awaken and see the evidence of her rampage as her inbox filled with confused and angry emails, mostly from people she hadn't seen in years. Thankfully, the number of people who answered her was dwindling....but she really bemoaned the fact that she had few friends left.

Etymology: Gin (a type of strong liquor flavored with juniper berries) plus incommunicado which means a state or condition in which one is unable or unwilling to communicate.

I always thought gin was made from hair tonic.
