Feelastoplast

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fee lasto plast

Sentence: His wife Mary had bravely and quietly undergone 24 hours of painful labor before having a C-section to deliver their 12 pound son. She never cried or let the pain overcome her or distress those around her. The breathing from the Lamaze classes had certainly helped. Her husband Harry, on the other hand, carried on something fierce when the nurse had helped him remove the feelastoplast from his arm, where blood samples had been extracted. His screams were chilling and continued on long after the bandage was gone. This, as Mary's Mother had quickly pointed out, was why the men did not get pregnant and carry on the Human Race.

Etymology: Feel (Sense through touch;examine (a body part) by palpation) & Elastoplast (an elastic adhesive bandage for covering cuts or wounds)

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: skin-jure

Sentence: Sara wasn't trying to skinjure Fred when she pulled the bandaid off his arm; however, he still cried like a girl when she touched him. Even though he was 35 years old, he still feared owies so she wisely kept a smiley face sticker in her purse for just such an occasion and rewarded him for being so brave.

Etymology: skin: outer layer of the body + injure: to cause pain or physical harm

Ripillatory

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: rip ill a toree

Sentence: Gavin was such a big baby about anything medical. No wonder men didn't have the babies or the human race would have died out long ago. He fainted at the sight of blood, so Blood Bank donations were nightmares for him. The way he told it, getting a blood test was a major psychological drama for him. He'd had no choice...doctor's orders. Get that blood test or else! Gavin summoned what little courage he had and had the blood work done. He pressed the cotton ball on the spot and when it was deemed safe, the nurse put a bandage on the afflicted area. He was told in an hour he could remove the bandage. Sure enough, an hour later, he talked his wife into gently please removing the bandaid. Naturally, the revenge she felt for all his crybaby acts was strong, so she pulled it off fast and nasty. The ripillatory agony he experienced was only surpassed by the phone call from the lab, saying they'd accidentally dropped his blood vials and he would have to return in the morning for retests! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Etymology: rip (to tear or be torn violently;the act of rending or splitting something) & ill (an often persistent bodily disorder or disease; a cause for complaining)& depilatory (something used to remove hair;able to remove hair or render hairless)
