I'm still not sure if this is going to be a weekly thing or just something that I'll choose to do on Wednesdays when I've collected enough weird-sounding word verifications that require - nay, demand - an official definition.
Tarized - Finding yourself still watching 'Cops' (or any dire TV show such as 'Cheaters' or 'The Bachelorette') long after the credits of the previous show (and the only one you intended to see) have finished, finding that it's now impossible...to....look.....away. You have been tarized by tacky television.
Dribb - Short version: Killer Tree Drops.
Longer version: The large, slow dollops of water that collect on tall trees during rainstorms that plop onto your head as you're walking underneath. Such is the magnitude of these drops that the droppee (ie you) start worrying if was just water and not, in fact, a huge turd excreted from a feathered creature roughly the size of Big Bird. The Droppee (ie you again) then stops and gingerly feels their hair, hoping that their fingers will not be covered in what resembles the insides of a unusually pungent Cadbury Creme Egg instead of water. If it's dribb, it's just water.
Caticeke - Usually occurring at 2am in total darkness during a lights-off stagger to the toilet for a mid-sleep twinkle, caticeke is the act of stepping into cat vomit and deciding to just wipe the affected foot on the carpet and keep walking, hoping that someone else in the house will be the first to wake up, see it and clean it.
"Barry, I know you caticeked last night because your big dumb foot print is right in the middle of it, so get out of bed, grab a chux and clean it up!"
Snonstin - A clump of mucus that has become dry enough to form its own separate entity and hangs vicariously from someone's nostril, sucking in to-and-fro in time with their breath. Snonstins have been known to mesmerise people, especially during job interviews, first dates and dental check ups.
Obsesto - Telling someone if they have something on their person that might potentially be very embarrassing, such as a chive stuck in their front teeth, an undone fly or a snonstin. Whilst it may seem a stretch of bravery to point out such a flaw to someone, any initial embarrassment they feel will pale into insignificance compared to the abject humiliation of delivering a well-researched lecture to a room full of presumably attentive people only to step from the podium and discover your silk blouse had been flapping open the entire time.
Cymble - A well-intentioned but mis-spelt slogan or word. The reader of the cymble is torn between agreeing with the sentiment and wanting to ignore it or amend it.
Cymbles are also often found in shops, especially those that serve cappuccinos and focaccias; with many take-away owners electing to pop in an apostrophe in 'Fish and Chip's'.
The world's most obsessed and prolific Cymble spotter would have to be my father. When he's not playing golf, turning wood (it's more innocent than it sounds), power walking, camping, bird watching (again, more innocent....), at Probus (yep....) or doing community work, his beady brown eyes are always on the lookout for Cymbles. If he's accompanied by someone when a Cymble is spotted, they'll then have to endure a well-intentioned but long rant about the sad lack of decent spelling in today's society.
However, they can always get their own back by pointing out that he's got a snonstin.
