Sentence: Walter glanced up at the sound of Doreen's chair squeaking as she sat down at the desk across from him. She regarded him with a smug expression, peering over the manila folder she seemed to have been studying. But something else was odd — there was steam rising from behind the folder. Grinning, Doreen lifted her freshly refilled coffee mug from behind the folder, took a sip, and set it on her desk. She was becoming very skilled in the art of Ninjitsup, almost as good as Walter himself. Filled with pride, he inclined his head toward Doreen and said quietly, "Now you are ready, my child. I can teach you no more."

Etymology: Ninjitsu - a Japanese martial art that emphasizes stealth in movement and camouflage (Japanese, nin- endure & -jutsu technique) + Sup - to take liquid into the mouth in small quantities, as by spoonfuls or sips (from Middle English, suppen "to drink")
