Cuppouflage

Created by: Rutilus

Pronunciation: cup-oh-flaj

Sentence: Linda carefully placed her cup in the box, the one she kept her 'tissues' in and headed in the direction of the ladies. She diverted to the stairwell to the next floor, walked back across, and down again straight into the kitchen. Tea made, she carefully crept back up the stairs, back across to the other side and down again, to make it look like she'd been to the loo. Once she was back at her desk she carefully took the mug of tea out of the box and enjoyed the moment. She had become quite adept in the execution of cuppouflage; she wasn't going to hang around making brews for all and sundy that's for sure.

Etymology: Cuppa - cup of tea/coffee; Camouflage - the art of concealment

Coffeebreakout

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: CAW fee BRAKE owt

Sentence: Each morning at 9:55, right before the boss gave his daily briefing to the high muckety-mucks, Joe managed to escape for his coffeebreakout. That way, he was able to avoid his coffee-loving co-workers, who were too busy lying low in case the boss was in a bad mood that day. As an added benefit, he escaped the notice of his "superiors," who would randomly assign "leadership opportunities," otherwise known as extra work, to whomever they stumbled upon on their way into the meeting. Sometimes Joe drank his coffee out back with Virginia, who liked to get away around that time for her smokebreakout.

Etymology: coffee break + breakout (escape from confinement)
