New Word Dares

It's Monday - time to showcase some new words for your creative pleasure. This week we have two candidates:

1. FLUGAH: noun - the feeling when one first sits down after being run off one's arse for many a day.
Wordsmith: Amy Ruttan (learn about Amy's new book release at her site)

I'll let Amy provide an example of application in the comments, if she likes.


2. DARK-THIRTY: noun - half an hour after sunset
Wordsmith: unknown Source: pseudodictionary.com

Here's my stab at it: "Ella felt it was very daring of her to stay out till dark-thirty to watch the fireworks, given how often her mother invoked the urban legend of children who mistook rocks for balls in the twilight and broke their feet."

I love the Dark-Thirty expression. And I still giggle when I see Amy's word. I need to sit down and come up with a few.
