The Washington Post's Style Invitational asked readers to take a word, then add, subtract or change one letter of it and supply a new definition. Here are a few answers:
Cashtration - the act of buying a house which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.
Giraffiti - vandalism spray-painted very, very high.
Sarchasm - the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.
Inoculatte - to take coffee intravenously when you're running late.
Glibido - all talk and no action.
Beezlebug - Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your bedroom at 3am and cannot be cast out.
Caterpallor - the colour you turn after finding half a grub in the fruit you're eating.
I came across the opening paragraph of this old letter today:
First and foremost, I wanted to again say that I am truly sorry that horsemeat was found in our beef lasagne. This should not have happened and we are taking action to make sure this will never happen again.
