Sentence: That first meal when she brought her boyfiend to meet her parents had not gone well. His chanting had drowned out grace before meals and his belching drowned out any attempt at polite conversation. When he used the crucifix on the mantlepiece to pick his teeth, she took her mothers dry retching and the thobbing in dad's temple as a signal that the evening had drawn to an end.

Etymology: boyfriend, fiend
