Pronunciation: shang ree lat tee tood

Sentence: It was as if the Gods had conspired and picked Rosalee to experience a shangrilatitude on Friday June 13, 2008. Everything her heart desired was fulfilled that day. She arose early to check her voicemails and received one from her boss saying he was giving her the next 3 weeks off with pay, as he had eloped with the love of his life. She enjoyed a leisurely breakfast on that sunny warm day on her terrace,checked her lottery numbers in the newspaper to discover she had won a fair sum and got a big bouquet of flowers delivered from "a secret admirer". Her shower had hot water for the entire shower and she was able to finally fit into that cute new dress she had bought before starving herself for the past few weeks. She decided to go out and headed straight to her travel agents and thought she'd check out a quick getaway for herself. She lucked out on a deal to Maui and flew out that night, upgraded to first class due to overbooking. On board, she was seated by a gorgeous hunk of a man, who as it happened, was single, rich and in search of a wife. They "clicked" and when they landed spent a glorious week getting to know each other in the island paradise. Before flying home, they went straight to a jewellers and bought her a honking big diamond ring. Rosalee's bliss knew no bounds. She called her family to invite them to her big celebrity garden wedding and was suddenly jarred back to reality by the customer lined up at her till in Walmart asking if there was a further discount on the Prada-like shoes she was buying for $7.38? Oh well, thought Rosalee, next time I get a shangrilatitude, I really should lie down before I dream!

Etymology: shangri-la (any place of complete bliss and delight and peace; imaginery paradise on Earth)& latitude(freedom from normal restraints in conduct)& attitude (a complex mental state involving beliefs and feelings and values and dispositions to act in certain ways)
