Nickannoy

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: nik-A-noy

Sentence: Friday, a file in the finger; Tuesday, a needle in the knuckle and, on Sunday, a graze on the glabella. Mishaps menaced Bob with monotony and nickannoys were second nature to him. Finally, worried that he would develop nickanoia, he told himself it was time to knock these needless, niggling nickannoyances on the head!

Etymology: Nick: a small cut & annoy; to irritate, esp in minor but continuing way.
