On the joy of inventing new words

After a series of embarrassing, but amusing, gaffes over the past week where I misread some perfectly innocent signs, I’ve created a new word:

smutlexia [smut-lek-seeuh]

noun, Pathology

definition: a reading disorder characterised by the sufferer’s unintentional misreading and subsequent confusion of innocent words or phrases with sexually suggestive alternatives; probable cause—reads a lot of smut.

What does this mean? Well, if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know.

Earlier today I misread a sign for a “Knit Together” crafts class as “Kink Together”. Which could have made for a very awkward fist first lesson. Nuff said.
