Himertia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: him ur sha

Sentence: Betty was a scientist and her best study was her husband Gill. He always displayed a bad case of himertia. He seldom stirred for days on end. She fully expected him to be hanging by his toenails from a tree when she got back from the lab. Oh well, she was doing her thesis on his himertia...had she done it on a female, it would have been called inhertia. But we all know that a woman's work is never done.

Etymology: Him (male person) & Inertia (the tendency of a body to maintain is state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external force; a disposition to remain inactive or inert)
