Neologism A Go-Go

Got another one for y’all.

Ever been pouring a bowl of some healthy-type cereal—Shredded Wheat, for instance—from a box that’s nearing empty, and just before you’re about to stop pouring and add the milk, a rush of pulverized cereal bits surges forth, filling your bowl with a talus of dust-mote-sized particles of breakfast chaff?

This, dear readers, is what I refer to as brandruff.

    How about “magnanimosity,” which is maliciously buying someone a hideously expensive gift for the express purpose of proving that you have way more money than the gift recipient or one/all of the other gift givers?

    Oh, that’s spectacular! Is that an original? Either way, I love it. 😀

    Mine, all mine. Alternative definitions include buying a gift that shows you have more taste than
    someone else or to influence someone’s behavior in an unwelcome way, e.g., buying box seats at the
    opera for someone who detests opera.
