Hovertend

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: huv-er-tend

Sentence: Interaction between members of the Johnson household was sparse. Spencer, who was 6 years old, usually would be off playing with his toys or running around outside with his friends, but whenever his mother or father reached for the phone, like a sixth sense, he would somehow migrate to the area and begin to hovertend until his parents would get fed up and yell at him to leave. Janet tried to get her husband to pay attention to her by hovertending in front of the football game on TV topless while he moved from side to side to see better. Even Noodles the cat would get into the act. Noodles would usually hide or be out of the way of anyone, unless it wanted food. In that case, if would plop down right in front of the TV set or on top of the newspaper while you were reading it until you fed it.

Etymology: hover, to keep lingering about; wait near at hand + tend, To apply one's attention

Tarryorist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tary or ist

Sentence: Jim was a very busy man. He worked hard at work and when he came home, he did some more work from home. He was usually plugged into his laptop, his cell phone and his Blackberry. But today he worked even harder than usual. He was driven and focussed on results. The only fly in his corporate ointment was his wife, Marcia. She was being a particularly annoying, demanding tarryorist today. She lingered around waiting for him to get off his phone and pouted, lollygagged, lingered, loitered and tried to distract him. She whined and pulled on his clothes and tried every trick up her sleeve to get him to stop working today. The harder he tried to ignore her, the even harder she tried to get his attention. He knew it must seem childish to an onlooker for him to keep pretending he was indispensible to his job and for her to keep acting so overbearing. But he had his reasons...two of them. Yes, his in-laws-from-hell were due to arrive at any moment for their monthly 2 week visit from out of town. He was just trying to put off Marcia's acts of tarryorism for as long as humanly possible. In the battle of wills, he was about to become a prisoner of war, without the benefits of the terms of the Geneva Convention.

Etymology: tarry (be near or hang about or wait around) & terrorist ( formidable person who uses terror inspiring methods or coercion to get what they want)
