Ambimesstrous

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: am bee mess truss

Sentence: Most women who are charged with a career, raising a family and keeping a home are ambidextrous multitaskers. Unfortunately, opposites attract, so they tend to get mates who are ambimesstrous. While the woman feeds a baby, irons a shirt for work, packs the lunches, cooks breakfast and ices the cupcakes for kindergarten, the husband stands in front of an open fridge, in front of the milk, shouting "Honey, where's the milk to put in my coffee, I can't see it anywhere?" He's not dressed yet, because she has not told him what to wear and where to find it and he ignores the starving cat and dog, who just want fresh water and food. They know that Mom will get it for them in a moment...

Etymology: Ambidextrous(equally skillful with each hand) & Mess (a state of confusion and disorderliness; informal terms for a difficult situation;make a mess of or create disorder in)

Punitasker

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: pyoōnētaskr

Sentence: Julia had to work last Saturday so she asked John to take care or fixing dinner. Knowing that he had little experience in the kitchen, she detailed everything he needed to do. He followed her instructions to the letter. He seared and cooked the steaks, prepared the mashed potatoes and vegetables. He even heated an apple pie for dessert. Unfortunately, John is not only a uni-tasker he is a punitasker. Not being able to manage the details and timing involved in getting it all done at the same time he did them in sequence. First he cooked the meat, then the vegetables and so on. After each step he would add the component to a plate and put it in the warmer oven. By the time Julia got home the steaks had the same consistency as the china. That’s when John displayed his one real talent. He placed an order with the local Chinese restaurant. John’s cooking didn’t go completely to waste. The baby carrots he cooked worked perfectly as toothpicks.

Etymology: puny (small and weak) + task (a piece of work to be done or undertaken) play on uni-tasker (something that has only one function)
