Graviteat

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: grav it eet

Sentence: It got to be too much for Julie. Taking her partner Matt out to trendy cocktail parties and other social outings were too embarrassing for her. You see, Matt would graviteat anything that he "accidentally" dropped on the ground. The first ten or twenty times it happened one could put down to clumsiness. But it now became apparent to Julie that he was doing it on purpose. He finally admitted to her that he loved to floorage for food...it somehow tasted better to him. She would have to find him a support group, like Parqueteaters Anonymous or ThirsaTiles or LinoleYum or Carpet Consumers and their Underlaying Causes. If she didn't, there would be no Welcome, Matt.

Etymology: Gravity (The force of attraction between the Earth's mass for bodies near its surface) & Gravitate (be attracted to;move toward) & Eat (consume food)
