Snackomania

Created by: airlie

Pronunciation: snak-uh-MAY-nee-ah

Sentence: It wasn't that he dull. It wasn't that he was bald, yet hairy at the same time. It wasn't even that he snored and smacked his lips when he ate.

Thomas's frequent pre-slumber snackomania irritated the living daylights out of Miriam, more than the crumbs that ended up in the bed. His nocturnal tachyphagus tendencies were really trying her patience... Rat poison featured too often in her dreames. Something had to give...

Etymology: SNACK: a small portion of food or drink or a light meal, esp. one eaten between regular meals, + MANIA: an exaggerated desire or enthusiasm for.
