-Inoculatte (v): To take coffee intravenously when you are running late

-Osteopornosis (n): A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

Jez'zas, Ralph.  That is spectacular.  I started reading ...Huh?!  Then I started thinking and almost pee'd myself.  This should be mandatory reading for anyone with the Covid Blues.  Thanks.
