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))

Cattygoreyes

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /kat-ee-gor-ayz/

Sentence: Max secretly delighted in mildly tormenting his 'person' — the Can Opener Lady, as he affectionately thought of her. She always wanted to go to sleep at the same time every night though, which was just strange, so it was easy to justify harassing her. He knew that staring at her while she was awake agitated her, but he'd discovered that even when her eyes were closed he could cattygoreyes her, boring his stare into the back of her head, and making her squirm. At the same time, Max would idly try to send her thoughts of getting up and work the can opener again, or making that fake mouse on a string come to life, as she sometimes did. Maybe it wasn't nice to tease the Can Opener Lady, but how else was he supposed to amuse himself late at night?

Etymology: Catty - slyly malicious (from Low Latin, cattus "cat"[-like]) + Gore - to pierce or stab (from Scottish, gorren) + Eyes - organs of sight (from Old English, ēge)

This would go on until she reached out to pat him under the chin and behind the ears. He made a perfect alarm clock...too bad she couldn't set Romeo for 3 hours later each morning!
