Dentrified

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: den-tri-fied

Sentence: (no offense to Gloria Gaynor) At first I was afraid, I was dentrified. Kept thinking I could never live if I should open wide. But then I spent so many nights thinkin' how my gums went wrong and I grew strong, and I learned how to go along. And so I'm back, my teeth to brace, You just walked in and have no chin with that thing on your face. I should have changed my worried mind, I should have made you rinse your mouth if I'd have known for just one second you'd be drilling north and south. Oh no, not I, I'm dentrified. As long as I can rinse and spit, I know that I'll revive. I've got all my teeth to fill, I'll just take this little pill and I'll survive, I will survive -- hey, hey!

Etymology: dentistry: care of the teeth + terrified: extreme fright

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)

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

I wished I could shun! During the mammogram, I wish I could slam a gram, or two, of his most tender flesh between those smashing, mashing plates! When he was done, I asked him "Why does a good going over have to feel so bad? Why is a physical so physicruel?"
