Compotsation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kom pote say shun

Sentence: Tara believed that if she ate fruit every time she had a drink, she would find compotsation for her vice. Her theory was that if you drank wine, which was made from fruit, you had to eat fruit to make up for the fruit lost during the fermentation process. Following her logic, one would eat potatoes if drinking vodka; sugar cane if drinking rum; roast corn if drinking bourbon and rice if drinking saki. If she had lived during Prohibition, she would have starved!

Etymology: Compote (dessert of stewed or baked fruit) & Compensation (a defense mechanism that conceals your undesirable shortcomings by exaggerating desirable behaviors)
