Tinytactilation

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: TIE-nee-TACKT-eel-ay shun

Sentence: Alison had never been to a whole-food warehouse, so Edmond found one and took her there. After ordering a drum of soy milk with gag-supressant, Edmond turned around and was taken aback at the sight of Alison standing betwixt two barrels with a look of orgiastic delight on her face. She had fallen victim to the phenomena known in the health-food industry as TINYTACTILATION ! Mesmerized by the sight of so many tiny wholesome nuggets of nutrition, Alison had plunged her left hand into the hogshead full of legumes, and her right hand into the split peas. Alison's TINYTACTILATION was bringing her close to that look of ecstasy Edmond had witnessed only the night before. Fearing he would have to purchase both barrels, Edmond grabbed her gently by the arms and guided Alison slowly outside to the car. Later he came back, had the two barrels delivered to his apartment, and they achieved a state of bliss unknown in the pallid world of pre-processed foods. They lived hapticly ever after.

Etymology: TINY+TACTILe+elATION....TINY:smaller than a grape___TACTILE:pertaining to the sense of touch;Tactile: French or Latin; French, from Latin tactilis, from tangere to touch___ELATION: the quality or state of being elated 2 : pathological euphoria
