Whine: I need an escape hatch. From my children.
Cheese: At least they give me good material to work with. They’re gonna hate me for this someday, aren’t they?
They say necessity is the mother of invention. In my case, it’s boredom. Which, I suppose if fueled by the necessity to amuse myself. Which, in turn, turns into blog posts about made up words.
Hence the debut of a new semi-regular post here at Whine and Cheese: UnWord Fun. This is where I occupy myself by making up words and trying to pass them off as real.
Our first ever unword:
food gloves [fud ghluvz] -noun
A covering for the hand made entirely of food, thus enabling the wearer to eat directly off of the hands without the intrusion of utensils. Also handy if the wearer wishes to save food for a later time.
Related Words: food hat, food mask, food turtleneck/scarf, food shirt, food pants, food diaper*, food socks
*Food diapers are used primarily as store-it-and-eat-it-later devices, rather than as utensils for immediate eating.
