Pronunciation: Preen-e-acks

Sentence: The Jones neighbors that lived next to Sliezanna were total "preenieacks" as they tirelessly worked hard to manicure their lawns and detailed their cars every single weekend. Sliezanna she was a "preenieack" about her appearance and she was living life to it's fullest. Yet,the Jones's next door gave her a tongue lashing about keeping her yard as nice as theirs in order to keep up the curb appeal and tax value in the neighborhood. The next thing they knew,poor little Sliezanna fainted over them telling her just how perfect she needed to be. Sliezanna recovered from her fainting and hired a lawn service and mobile car wash company to keep up appearances so the nagging neighbors would mind their own business. All is well in the neighborhood...except for that nagging old Mrs. Jones next door that cuts her eyes every time she sees Sliezanna dressed to the 9's and giggling as she waves goodbye to Mrs. Jones.

Etymology: Preen;grooming. ieacks;(slang); more than one person having a mania about their own preening,cleaning and grooming habits whether personal or objects that need grooming.
