Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tar ree er ist

Sentence: "Oh, no!" thought Bernie, "it's Tina the Tarryerist again". She'd stand just inside his door waiting for him almost the moment his phone rang. No matter how long his call, she'd wave to him, mouth words at him, carry on and generally make a nuisance of herself. He'd called her out on this behavior before, but she ignored his wishes and kept on torturing him like this. When he was not on the phone, she was always elsewhere in the building. It was hard to get too mad at her though, since she was only 2 years old...
