Callitosis

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: kol/i/to/sis

Sentence: The weekend was just too short and the beach too perfect. Though it was the middle of October, the sun was hot, and the surf was up.

Not only was she going to take Monday off, but she planned to let her boss know this bout was so bad, she would not only be out until Thursday, BUT would most probably show up with a bad case of skin discoloration from the antibiotics the doctor had prescribed.

Etymology: call: The dreaded "calling in sick" phone call. osis: suffix-affected with, condition, abnormal process.
