Focusbrokeus

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: fo-kus-bro-kus

Sentence: Even though he was a prolific writer, Bob was unbelieveably ADHD to the point where he couldn't keep a relationship because his mind and his boot heels would go wanderin' all the time. Alice would try to talk to him, but he would get a faraway look in his eye and she knew he was off in some mental magic swiriling ship and not really with her. The day he forgot that he was supposed to be going to see her and instead spent the entire day dancing with a corner street musician she had enough and sent him packing. When asked about the sad ending of their relationship she would quietly explain, "Focusbrokeus."

Etymology: focus: attention to a particular point or detail, have a direction in life + broke: broken + us

hyperborean Many of the words today are creative, but very few stick to the definition. Yours does, and it also works with the cartoon AND the Dylan theme! You've got my vote! - hyperborean, 2009-05-07: 23:30:00

Quitessential

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: kwit-uh-sen-shuhl

Sentence: Marsha assumed that the owner's manual had a typo when it described her new computer as quitessential. Not so. All too often, when she was at a crucial juncture in a tabulation, it would just quit. She wouldn't even get the dreaded blue screen, just a few Chinese-looking Kanji characters and a shutdown. When she had the characters translated, they said "I have a headache, goodnight". So much for buying a cheap PC from the back of a van.

Etymology: quit (of the pure and essential essence of something) + essential (absolutely necessary; indispensable)
