Invisablitations

Created by: abrakadeborah

Pronunciation: In-vis-a-bli-tay-shuns

Sentence: Carla was quite the strange one. She often times would speak of "invisablitations" of seeing her cat fly at night and apparitions of things flying around during the day. Nobody ever believed her as she was constantly dodging invisible objects and swatting into thin air at objects nobody else could see. She would scream out loud for no apparent reason...No wonder she thought her cat could fly as it would often leap across the room! Poor Tomcat was constantly startled by Carla's "invisablitationous" outbursts that he was leaping from place to place to get away from her. Carla's best friend Harry often stood in calmness as he watched her scream and swat at invisible objects.

Etymology: Invisible & abilities in action; to flail arms,snort,scream and act out at unknown objects flying around.

Ufofrighting

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: u f o fright ing

Sentence: The most recent of Lunar’s ufofrightings came at the time she was searching through a particularly tangled shrub in her garden for what, we can only imagine. Lunar knew there was something lurking in that gaudy intertwine of Hydrangea/Lilac: she could sense a presence waiting to lunge! She pressed her lips together. Her piercing gaze into the shrub was easily interrupted by, high in the distant sky, a luminescent puck, a ufofrighting! It immediately removed her from her paranoidormal search into the greenery. Lunar tore quickly into her tiny kitchen, double-locked the door, pressed her lips together and fixed a piercing ghaze up into the sky...

Etymology: from ufo sighting and fright - to fear the appearance of an unidentified flying object

Uiffyo

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: U iff ee OH

Sentence: She was paranoid of the paranormal and believed she had a special gift, a seventh sense she called her uiffyo: that iffy sense that she was not alone and she was being watched, maybe even stalked by UFOs. She felt that sense of possibility every day. Every mosquito bite was a possible entry mark from an abductor, every star or airplane above could have been a UFO. But her friends were getting tired of her obsessive and weird behaviour. They all agreed that her uiffyo sense was getting uiffyold.

Etymology: UFO: iffy: uncertain; at issue, in doubt
