Embaristament

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: em-bear-ees-ta-ment

Sentence: It was a beastly hot day in Georgia and the place was Java Sun, a combination expresso shop and tanning parlor. Sootie thought she could get away it. Instead of her usual, she had ordered a decaf frozen mocha (with whipped cream) from the new barista while Josh was on his break at the gun shop next door. She and Josh had a serious thing about three shots going. It was bad timing when Josh arrived before she had finished the delightful new concoction. She panicked when she realized she didn't have time to slip into one of the beds down the hall. Her heart began skipping more beats than usual as she saw Josh sniffing. She knew it was over as he approached her, downing the last dregs, and sidling towards the trash can. She could have died of embaristament.

Etymology: A play on embarrassment, using barista, one who works behind a bar and serves
