Pronunciation: left-o-vert

Sentence: Harry was a habitual leftovert. He flagrantly and knowingly left bits and scraps of his voracious appetite in his refrigerator with no intention of dealing with them, nor any remorse for their abandonment. As difficult as it is to cure leftoversion, Jenna made it more so by being his enabler. She made excuses for him and tried to conceal his lazyfare attitude by blaming herself for not being more like her hero, Martha Stewart.

Etymology: Leftover: a vestige of a meal that is usually saved in the refrigerator with the intention of being reused before it petrifies or turns multicolored + overt: open, implicit or flagrant
