Word of the day: Lalochezia

Definition: Relief from stress or pain through swearing. (Though, I like to think of it as ‘swearing for pleasure’.)

Judy’s doctor told her she may get some relief from joining the Laugh Out Loud group, who regularly met for therapeutic laughter sessions. She eagerly turned up for her first LOL session, but went in the wrong door at the community centre, and ended up at the wrong LOL meeting.

At first, she was a bit confronted by it all, but now can’t wait to attend her weekly Lovers Of Lalochezia sessions.

 

[On a side note, if you’re throwing this one around, make sure you don’t confuse it for ‘allochezia’. A simple slip of the keyboard away, this could get very messy. No, don’t look it up. Seriously. You will not be able to un-see this.]
