Starewait

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ster wate

Sentence: It never ceased to amaze Lucy how every morning at 5:00 am precisely, her dog, Rex, would starewait her awake. He must be a watch dog, thought Lucy, because he knows exactly when 5:00 am came, an hour before the alarm went off. No matter how late every night everyone would go to bed, Rex was positioned starewaiting her awake until she had no choice but to get up and let him out. How could he manage on so little sleep she wondered. What she did not realize was that the moment everyone left the house, Rex would sleep, all day, for 8 or 10 hours on end. This gave him the rest he needed to get up at 5:00 every day. If he did not stop, Lucy was going to wish he was on a starewait to Heaven.

Etymology: stare (look at with fixed eyes or a fixed look with eyes open wide)& wait (the act of waiting (remaining inactive in one place while expecting something))
