    You know when the sun gets in your eyes, or you look at a bright light and it makes you sneeze?

    I invented a word for that: "photosneezethis."

    You're welcome.

      I like your new word, but I'm not that witty. My first mother-in-law invented a word that I just love. In fact, sometimes I have to stop and figure out what the original word was. The family was sitting around and talking about nostalgic memories when she said, "We've got to stop this, it's giving me 'naustasia'. You know, a combination of nausea and nostalgia."

      Quite interesting. Actually inventing new words and co-opting words from other languages is what makes a great difference between living and dead languages. One is dynamic while the other is static.
      If you can invent words which are easy to understand, your write - ups are more fun and engaging to your readers. Keep it up.

      Yep, but that is the type of thing that a witchy mermaid lady would do wink The magic of written word happens in many ways.

      I love that word, Liz! I always sneeze when I first go out into the bright light. I always attributed to my blue eyes.
