Graindiosity

Created by: jadenguy

Pronunciation: grain - dee - ah - city

Sentence: The stress of impending meetings and inane mission statements vanished in one fell swoop; the smooth soy ravaging her in sensational grandiosity.

Etymology: Grain + Grandiosity.

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

I wanted to combine the word grand and grain, but it didn't seem to well. Graind. But grandiosity means, using synonyms loosely, feeling really great about not a whole lot, and grains because the things mentioned were granular. But granular and grand and/or grandiose didn't really work. Grand. Pretty sure I've seen that word before. Grandule...? No, no, graindiosity's fine. - jadenguy, 2007-05-28: 19:52:00

great - it encompasses all grains - Jabberwocky, 2007-05-29: 08:45:00
