Word Dares

Time for the weekly dose of word-level creativity! Today's candidate is:

ARMAJELLO: noun
'the saggy underside of the upper arm, commonly found on ageing adults.'
Word Smith: Jeannette Page Source: 'Wanted Words 2', Jane Farrow (Ed.)

Apprentice Writer's stab at application:
"Ella wasn't a gym devotee by nature. But she chose to live in a climate which allowed sleeveless tops year-round, so the shuddering vision of future armajello guaranteed her regular dates with the hand weights."

I'll try, coz this one's easy. "I have to start going to the Y because I have armajello." See? Easy. :)

hi, carrie and christine!

armajello is, of course, another one of those things that only women worry about, though men get it as well..

Oh great. Now when I brush my hair in the mirror, I'll be thinking "ARMAJELLO ALERT!"

Great word ;)
