Ambimesstrous

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: am bee mess truss

Sentence: Most women who are charged with a career, raising a family and keeping a home are ambidextrous multitaskers. Unfortunately, opposites attract, so they tend to get mates who are ambimesstrous. While the woman feeds a baby, irons a shirt for work, packs the lunches, cooks breakfast and ices the cupcakes for kindergarten, the husband stands in front of an open fridge, in front of the milk, shouting "Honey, where's the milk to put in my coffee, I can't see it anywhere?" He's not dressed yet, because she has not told him what to wear and where to find it and he ignores the starving cat and dog, who just want fresh water and food. They know that Mom will get it for them in a moment...

Etymology: Ambidextrous(equally skillful with each hand) & Mess (a state of confusion and disorderliness; informal terms for a difficult situation;make a mess of or create disorder in)
