Missedconception

thegoatisbad

Created by: thegoatisbad

Pronunciation: mis′d·con·cep′·tion

Sentence: Although Kimberly would never admit it, she desperately wanted to have a child; Loretta did not. But Loretta looked pregnant, and was often asked by strangers "when is your boy or girl due?" This didn't bother Loretta, who would park in expectant mother spaces and convince offices where she occasionally temped to host baby showers. "What are you going to do with all these baby clothes?" asked Kimberly "I don't know," responded Loretta "dress my dolls and plants with them. Come meet Mr. Fern and his kids." Loretta's flippant attitude annoyed Kimberly, who realized that they were both the victims of missedconception.

Etymology: missed (feel absence of) + conception (making a baby) Play on Misconception (a false impression or belief)

Falsguestation

Created by: mweinmann

Pronunciation: Falls + Gess + Tay + Shun

Sentence: I hadn't seen Cheryl in a few years. It was a magical evening, our sorority sister reunion couldn't be more special. We had great food, wonderful weather poolside, listening to one of our favorite college bands. I was so eager to talk to Cheryl, relive old times and catch up on news. "Pink or blue, when is it due?", I gaily sung, as I approached my obviously pregnant friend. She wheeled around, glaring at me and retorted "Wow, I must have gained more than I realized." "I have been unable to have children, Lindsey". I was totally mortified by my falsguestation.

Etymology: The word "false" (meaning wrong, not true) starts off this word, joined by most of the word "guess" (to expect, believe or suppose)and finally, the word "gestation" is added (the period of time a baby is carried in the womb, pregnancy)

very nice play on words ... but the meaning could be mistaken for a man's padded belly while playing Santa.
