Compotsation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kom pote say shun

Sentence: Tara believed that if she ate fruit every time she had a drink, she would find compotsation for her vice.

Following her logic, one would eat potatoes if drinking vodka; sugar cane if drinking rum; roast corn if drinking bourbon and rice if drinking saki. If she had lived during Prohibition, she would have starved!

Etymology: Compote (dessert of stewed or baked fruit) & Compensation (a defense mechanism that conceals your undesirable shortcomings by exaggerating desirable behaviors)
