    There is a "dimpatient" insurance about a guy at a job interview.

    dimpatient - dim and impatient

    I guess it is so new I can't find it. I got a laugh out of it.

    When my niece was 5, her mother found her laying on the floor, holding herself as still and stiff as she could. "What are you doing?" asks mom. "I have frigamorgis." comes the reply. Now, in my family, anything that is stiff has "frigamorgis".

    Meanderthal...meander + Neanderthal. I had this one for a few decades & of course, somebody has entered it in the Urban Dictionary. It aptly describes much of my day. I'm somewhat of a word nerd, loving word play, puns, (much to others chagrin) & am Upwords, (Scrabble on steroids...you'll never go back!), addict. On a better day, I've spelled 5 words in one play. ***Warning; Upwords undoes any spelling abilities you once had, thinking outside the word box. I make up words all the time, sometimes combining malapropism with a new, combination, hybrid word.

    Noassatall: A condition one of my brother-in-laws suffered from which precluded him from ever wearing Levis without a belt.

    1973, Dad takes a quick turn in the LTD wagon with 5 of seven kids in the car, middle child yells out: "Oh, Dad... you gave me windshift! (meant whiplash), we still laugh about it.

    1977, eighth grade, my group of friends are talking on the playground about what we're going to do after school (climb a water tower or some stupid stuff), one of the girls yells: You're going to what?!", we repeat, and ask her if she wants to join us, to which she responds: "No way, my Dad would Murdle-ize me!". That became the official name for all punishments for the rest of the school year. (That one is in the urban dictionary as "Murdalize")

    I suffer from that ailment as well, from when I was a stick, to even now being overweight.

    My father-in-law will often use the word shi-thead... "shi-theed" to describe someone who has frustrated him.

    Or, alternatively, he'll use the Italian pronunciation for ... asswipé ... "ahsweepay".

    :rolleyes:

    Bouncebackability. A word invented on the spot by UK soccer coach Iain Dowie whilst talking about his then team. As in (and I paraphrase) "We're going through a bad patch now but we've got bouncebackability, we'll get over it."
    It's in Collins dictionary now so it's become an accepted word meaning able to recover quickly from a setback, especially in sport.

    I have the more extreme condition I call Gluteus Concaveous, which precludes me from wearing any pants without suspenders. A belt has no effect, as there is nothing to prevent it from slipping down to me knees.

    I used to think "Alzheimers" was "old timers".

    the Washington Post has a regular feature/columnist who trades in these kinds of words - I think the column calls them "neologisms". I'm not sure you want to repeat that in certain company - or maybe you do. They also have an annual contest to "repurpose" words - where you come up with an alternative definition for existing words. a link:

    Here's a good repurposing:
    Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk.

    Ossifer, lemme esplanade why my car is upside down there.
