Manoeuphoria

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: mahn-o-u-for-e-a

Sentence: "We have a name for it," the doctor had said, "manoeuphoria." All her life Bridget had felt only a slight guilt and unease whenever she stuck her hand into containers of small, cool, round, but firm, objects. They were especially pleasurable on a hot summer's day. She couldn't stop herself. Her first indulgence had come in childhood when she would stick her hand--she always prefered her left--into the large jar of buttons in her grandmother's sewing room. Later, when she was older, she had done the same with the peas, rice and other legumes her parents stored in the storm cellar of their farmhouse in Kansas. Now that she was a famous actress in New York City, the gourmet jelly beans she kept in the half-barrel by her bedside didn't quite produce the same high, but she had her memories. It had been a long process describing her feelings to the doctor, but in her last session she had been able to tell him she knew what it was to be one with a waterfall.

Etymology: From manos, for hand; euphoria, for intense happiness

Rice is a legume?

rikboyee - 2007-05-28: 01:00:00
it has bean for a while now

petaj petaj - 2007-05-28: 04:38:00
If there is no pulse after a nitrogen fix, check for dry pellets or signs of pea.

Clayton - 2007-05-28: 04:55:00
Too funny. Peas keep it up. Apparently rice is of the family Poaceae, and legumes Fabaceae. They share the same division, Magnoliopsida, but not the same class or order, so they're not very closely related as far as I can tell. But my thumb isn't so green, either.

Verbotomy Verbotomy - 2007-05-28: 08:47:00
Thank you for the question and clarifications. I apologize for my loose conjugglation. I was merely trying to plant a seed (or even provide a barrelful of seeds) that would allow our verbotomists to leguritate in a little verbal lentitillation, and perhaps climax with a grammatical tactileguminosaeity. To encourage this kind of wild inpulsation, perhaps we should change the definition to read "... a barrelful of rice, legumes, seeds, candies, or any other dry pellet-shaped objects." ~ James

Clayton - 2007-05-28: 18:03:00
Why stop there? Let's include moist things, too, like baked beans, caviar, and goose liver.
