New Word Wednesday #24

Every time I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)

I decided several weeks ago to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.


Here are this week's words:

comagu:  (noun) the white liquid nutrition given intravenously to an individual on a liquid diet; as in, "Mr. Eva was hooked up to an IV containing comagu which looked suspiciously like he was main-lining runny mashed potatoes for a couple of days after his surgery."

glogin:  (noun) a large alcohol and tonic water concoction served with a twist of lime which quickly renders a flushed look to the facial features of the imbiber; a in, "After hearing her husband's diagnosis, Mrs. Eva really could have used a glogin."

grayali:  (adjective)  a slang term used to refer to a senior housing complex; as in, "The condominiums near the river are known as the grayali condos."

repee:  (verb) the need to urinate again after just having gone; as in, "Ellen found that since she retired, she always needed to repee."

vamine:  (noun) term used to refer to a female's sexual dry spell or a lack of traffic in her v-jay; as in, "Arnold wasn't the sexiest man Alma had ever met, but it seemed like it was either feast of vamine!"

Remember....use the words three times in a sentence and they are in your vocabulary for ever!

If comagu is thinly mashed potatoes, I would love to have that mainlined! I LOVE mashed potatoes. However, I hear the residents at the grayali community I work at, do not care for them like I do. But it seems I am at the right place of employment because along with them, even I have to repee several times during the day. Sometimes if it has been a long hard day, a glogin might be in order. But if I ever have that vamine issue, well. . . . that is just terrible! I cannot make myself even think about it!

I always seem to stop by at the right time - you know how much I love this! Repee is genius!

Repee is a commonly used term in this house of four females. The dad, here, hates the term.

Eva Gallant said...

Rosaria: You use the term way too loosely!

Dawn: By my mishaps, I hope your not refetting to repee; I have way too much Poise for a mishap there!
