Made-Up Words

Jennie occasionally makes up words to suit her needs. She's actually pretty good at it.

For instance, just the other day Jennie and I were getting ready to go somewhere, and I put on a shirt that wasn't exactly -- how should I say it -- pressed. In fact, it was quite wrinkled. It was exhibiting a phenomenon that really doesn't quite fit into the "wrinkled" category. It's collar and edges were, well, wavy. Jennie called it "flumped up."

Exactly. My shirt was flumped up. Perfect, we now have a name for the wavy shirt syndrome. Now how do we go about adding that to Webster's?

Later... "Diangonal" is the word for today. I suppose it's a cross between diagonal and angle.
