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))

Eyesickle

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: AHY-si-kuhl

Sentence: The icy glare of the glass eye Bob got from the KGB Disposal's shop in Moscow was as chilly as a Siberian winter. And out of the shadows of darkness, Roxie swore that it was watching her. Often she would wake from sleep and yelled, " My God! It knows what I dreaming about." Bob told her not to worry, that the Cold War was now but an icicle and she was reading too much Orwell. Furthermore as he was so happy with his eyesickle, and having heard about a new Russian made prosthesis, named: "glassnose", he was thinking of ordering one also.

Etymology: Blend of EYE & SICKLE, with ICICLE in mind.

Ever so clever! Your wit is always a big hit with me! I'm all 'ayes' up over this one! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-18: 10:07:00

creepy but funny - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-18: 14:53:00

You'd think Bob would get pink eye from such a creation. I'm sure Roxy will find a way of Stalin, instead of letting Bob go Russian out to buy a new nose! It would be quite a Tass to blow his glassnose without breaking it! I am sure he could buy a couple of moles from that KGB Shop, too! Great sentence, Comrade!(Or should I say Tovarich!) - Nosila, 2008-03-18: 20:04:00
