Eonator

Sentence: Francesca is a researcher for various clients in Wash, D.C. Most of the research required needs to be done online and is usually accompanied by,"I need this yesterday!" There is a power failure in her office, so she is going to have to work from home. Now she is in a near panic because her home office doesn't have the sophisticated equipment she has at the downtown office. Francesca's hubby promised he would either upgrade or replace most of her equipment as a gift to her. This is a promise and process long overdue. Now she is in a bind and is concerned she won't meet her clients' deadlines. She is tired and frustrated by her eonator of a husband and her eonator of a computer. She will have to rely on her collegue, Susan, to help her. At least she finds some relief in the knowledge that she will have Susan's assistance and access to state-of-the-art equipment to meet the deadlines due. While traveling to Susan's office, Francesca couldn't help but wonder if her husband was home eonating on how and when to start her office upgrade.

Etymology: eon: an indefinitely long period of time ate: cause or make
