Manoeuphoria

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: mahn-o-u-for-e-a

Sentence: "We have a name for it," the doctor had said, "manoeuphoria." All her life Bridget had felt only a slight guilt and unease whenever she stuck her hand into containers of small, cool, round, but firm, objects. They were especially pleasurable on a hot summer's day. She couldn't stop herself. Her first indulgence had come in childhood when she would stick her hand--she always prefered her left--into the large jar of buttons in her grandmother's sewing room. Later, when she was older, she had done the same with the peas, rice and other legumes her parents stored in the storm cellar of their farmhouse in Kansas. Now that she was a famous actress in New York City, the gourmet jelly beans she kept in the half-barrel by her bedside didn't quite produce the same high, but she had her memories. It had been a long process describing her feelings to the doctor, but in her last session she had been able to tell him she knew what it was to be one with a waterfall.

Etymology: From manos, for hand; euphoria, for intense happiness
