A few weeks ago I went to the beach and it has come to my attention that the first two words should be added to the dictionary.

1) Hude- an expression used to describe one who is so hairy that nude is hardly an appropriate adjective.

Ex. “I thought that man was wearing an ugly sweater, but he was just hude.”

2) Fald- when one’s hair has not actually fallen out, but simply slowly slid off the top of their head and down the back throughout the years.

Ex. “One can hardly imagine that fald guy once had a full head of hair.”

If you think the first two were gross, you might find this next word useful.

3) Ijutualbimm- an expression similar to the phrase “I just threw up a little bit in my mouth” used to explain a nauseous feeling due to the discovery of disturbing information.

Ex. “Ijutalbimm! I would have been better off if you would have never told me that.”

4) Phamish- people who claim to be Amish, but use electricity and lie to people about the type of nuts in their “homemade” fudge.

Ex. “The Phamish told me their fudge contained no walnuts; however, after my tongue and face swelled up, I realized I should never again trust Phamish.”

This last one should be in the dictionary just because aardvark should not be first.

5)Aardvantager- one who reads the dictionary.

Ex. “If you were and aardvantager, you would know the letter “A”, not “aardvark”, is actually the first thing mentioned in the dictionary.

Flusterated-(flus-ter-rated)= A word that is created by 'fluster' and 'aggravated'. Can be used in place of both to show the amount of either word to show a collective feeling about any given situation which is fitting. It has countless uses! ;) (Example: Anna grew tired of feeling flusterated; she felt that communicating with her teenaged son was as productive as slamming her head into a brick wall.)

multifit-(multi-fit)=A word that decribes something/anything that serves a purpose but also has additional uses. (Example: Trina has kept duct tape with her in her car. She found that it was the perfect multifit when dealing with her 12 year old car! Or- Tim knew that toothpaste would fill in the holes of hanging pictures in his rental unit when he left. Toothpaste was an awesome multifit!)

Sorry, I've been procrastinating on this prompt. The only new word I can think of is "nacilbuper," a noun, a person or group that solves massive problems on an equally massive scale and makes the world a much safer place. By remarkable coincidence, its antonym happens to be the same letters read backwards.
