While reading product descriptions online, I came across a word I wasn’t very familiar with and it sounded out-of-place. The word was discommodiously. It is an actual word, but it doesn’t mean what it sounds like. I mentioned this word to Mango-Man, and he didn’t have to look it up to suggest a definition:
Discommodiously sounds like something you do while on the can! 🙂
Usage: After eating all those bean burritos last night I had to rush to the restroom and use the toilet quite discommodiously!
The word actually means “to cause inconvenience or annoyance to; disturb”, so it kind of fits his example. On second thought, when Mango-Man uses my restroom, it does cause inconvenience and annoyance because the paint peels off the walls! So maybe he does know what he’s talking about!
So I nominate discommodious as the word of the week. Use it any chance you get, to add more flavor and spice to your conversations.

Perhaps it should be examined on sixty minutes, but I am pretty sure you don’t know what you’re talking about…
