After the reading of the will, Fluffy decided to spend the remainder of his life in Uncle Bob's mansion in Hawaii so we had to move there. After all, it was what Uncle Bob wanted.

Pronunciation: just like beneficiary

Sentence: There was an enormous aquarium smack-bang in the middle of the manor's ballroom. It was a benefishery of the old CODger's estate. He left the manor to his great-nephew providing that he kept the fish in the manner to which they were accustomed. Instead of gravel, the bottom was covered with a layer of glittering gemstones. The fish had their own chef, and fresh water was shipped from Lake Malawi every month to make them feel at home.
