Cranks My Tractor

Prestofrigeration- n. The peculiar habit, when searching for a snack, of constantly returning to the refrigerator in hopes that something new will have materialized.

Purpitation- v. To take something off the grocery shelf, decide you don't want it, and then put it in another section. You’ve done it haven’t you?

Testlice(test' lys) - n. Those tiny bugs that invade your hair when you're taking an exam. I’ve always wondered why my students scratch their heads so much during tests.

Yardribbons(yard rib' onz) - n. The unmowed patches of grass discovered after one has put away the mower. (My son seems to think his yardribbons are art.)

My advice is not to worry so much about picking the perfect word, friends know what you mean.

You won’t find “sloved” anywhere, but I bet you’ve done it. Slove rhymes with love.

If you’ve “sloved” your dessert with anyone, you know what I mean.
