Sentence: My friend is so Narcisspicuous. Every day she asks "Do I look fat?" and she is 30 lbs. underweight so I say "no", of course. Except one day I said "yes", she cried first and then ran to the bathroom... I guess to brush her teeth because weird gurgling noises kept me up all night.

Etymology: Narcissist (love of oneself) + conspicuous (clearly visible)

A great word. Makes you sound smart, though you may look a little dumb unravelling your tongue.
