Mrrightoutofleftfield

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mis ter rite out of left feeld

Sentence: The big day to meet the parents had been set and Alice nervously brought her Mr. Right home. Her father Ned was very curious about the man who could capture his little princess' heart. Alice had been a straight A student, cheerleader, volunteer, model, singer, great cook, beauty queen and had earned a scholarship and got her Phd in Astrophysics. When they arrived at the door, Ned was unprepared for the unkempt, illiterate, grimy trogolodyte who Alice had driven over. His name was Albert Capone, he grunted in answer to her father's pointed questions and leered at Alice's Mom, Phyllis in an entirely inappropriate way, while necking with Alice. Mr Right turned out to be Mrrightoutofleftfield, a caring father's nightmare. Alice would hear no bad things about him from her Dad and thought he was being unfair. She finally saw the light, literally, when the FBI Helicopter spotlighted their home and many agents swarmed them arresting Al on the spot for multiple charges including income tax evasion. Ned has now taken charge of finding a suitable replacement for Albert. Afterall, Father knows best.

Etymology: Mr Right (The man who would be the perfect mate)& Out of Left Field (an unexpected, bizarre, or unwatched source (especially in the phrases out of left field and from left field... a baseball reference)

Today's definition is inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Neanderthal trilogy, Hominids, Humans and Hybrids. (We couldn't go through the whole RJS week without mentioning Neanderthals!) It's a story of two parallel worlds -- a human one and a Neanderthal one. The story pivots around the romantic tension between a female human and male Neanderthal. How about that for spicing up the gene pool? And I wonder what their parents would think? Thanks to Rob for the great story, and the inspiration. ~ James
