Bedrheumeyes

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: bed room ize

Sentence: Buck was one of those cats with bedrheumeyes. He would watch you sleep all night until his penetrating, watery glances would stare you awake. When he did this to his owner, Lauren,she knew upon waking 2 things for sure...A) Buck had used his bedrheumeyes on her and B) He wanted her to let him out, now! If Lauren ignored him, it was at her peril, for he would leave some bodily fluids or other masses in her bed. Phrases like "The Buck stops here" and "She would do anything for a Buck" originated with Lauren...

Etymology: Bed (where one sleeps at night) & Rheum (A watery or thin discharge, of serum or mucus, especially from the eyes, especially from eye strain or infection) & Eyes (The windows to the soul;peepers;optical organs of sight)
