Sentence: Rosemary was clumsy and ashamed to admit that she walked into walls, tripped over air and ripped her skin off when she shaved. But the day she took out her eye tweezing her eyebrows made her a oneyedeneyer..... Despite the fact that she was missing an eye, she could not bring herself to admit that she had done it herself and went into oneyedenial....

Etymology: one + eyed + deny + denier (spelled to match the missing eye)...
