Toothordare

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tooth or der

Sentence: Each time Wendell went to see his family dentist, Dr. Payne, he felt like he was playing toothordare. Just because Dr.Payne was in his eighties, was cross-eyed and had shaky hands, somehow Wendell felt weak and vulnerable. Dr.Payne also had a sense of humor and never failed to mention that he had a lot of pull or was trying not to look down in the mouth. His family had gone to Dr. Payne for years, and all just because Wendell's Granny had dated him. The old gal had always called Dr. Payne, brace yourself, The Leader of the Plaque!

Etymology: Play on Truth or Dare (a game where you must tell the truth or suffer the consequences)
