Rebonerr

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ree bone air

Sentence: Pete Ayr was one absent-minded dude. Since his attention span was zip and he never paid attention to what he was doing, he programmed himself to rebonerr regularly. He always lost keys, forgot what to do and generally spent his days in a vortex of making goofy mistakes, from which he learned nothing. He was not always this way. His distraction was not due to chemical abuse, dementia or stupidity, but more plausibly due to being in love. He had met the woman of his dreams, Jill, and since then his head was in a swirl. His rebonerr was charming but at times annoying to Jill. As a result of his behaviour, she nick-named him Re-Pete Ayr. I guess that was better than being called Fatal Ayr.

Etymology: re (do again); boner (stupid, embarrassing mistake); err (to make a mistake or be incorrect) rhymes with debonair(having a sophisticated charm-NOT!)

I only made the word because I really wanted a word to use to describe this. In hindsight, I probably should have also tried to come up with one... This wont' be the last time that happens.

Uh, wouldn't this qualify as 'Addiction?'
