Extreamissism

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ex stree miz izm

Sentence: Amanda was at that troubled age, you know, at 33, where she was trying to do research for a book. She plastered her house with post-it notes and one had to wonder when and if she would ever refer to them. Her passion for sticky little paper notes was a form of extreamissim. Her logic was that if she wrote a thought or idea on paper, it would get out of her head and leave room for more important things. Wrong! She should go to Quire Practice and get rid of some tension. The sad truth was that her book was about saving trees and using less paper!

Etymology: Extreme (the furthest or highest degree of something;far beyond a norm in quantity or amount or degree; to an utmost degree) & Ream (a quantity of paper; 480 or 500 sheets; one ream equals 20 quires;a large quantity of written matter)& Extremisim (any political theory favoring immoderate uncompromising policies)

The unusual fashion was noticed by the company's executives and she soon found that she was getting requests to make clothing for the CEOs who needed a lot of meeting reminders. Inspired, she began to create suits, hats and ties made entirely of sticky notes and eventually developed a line of expensive postitwear clothing designed to remind the wearer of appointments, birthdays, and deadlines. After making her fortune selling her sticky clothing creations, she moved into a new line of fashion - velcro playwear for toddlers.
