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
