Spasticky

Created by: ScrabbledEgg

Pronunciation: spa-stik-ee

Sentence: What began as simple postitillation during the early phase of her project, mushroomed to despostism as she became increasingly fanoteical the closer she got to her deadline. On the eve before her presentation, she went completely spasticky and was found the next morning cocooned in her cubicle, and mummified by her own gluey to do lists. She was diagnosed with minor paper cuts and Post-It Traumatic Stress Disorder and sent home to recuperate. The moral: Visual organizers can be good, but beware, my fellow verbotomists, it's a slippery slope...or in this case, a sticky one.

Etymology: spastic + sticky note
