Pronunciation: post/itch

Sentence: Lea was sure she was finally on top of things. Feeling so organized and up to date on all of her errands, paperwork, phone calls etc. Things that were not done yet, were in line and in order for when she had the time. Now that she was free she invited Tony over to her place for the first time. She was devastated when he took just a few steps in, looked around and said, "Oh man,'ve got the worst case of Postitch I've ever seen, and I haven't been vaccinated!" Needless to say, after he said, "See ya when I see ya," she stood there "scratching her head" in disbelief, then made a note to herself "Google Postitch" and stuck it on the fridge.

Etymology: Post-It Itch
