Creative Juices Flowing Day 2

Today we are continuing the creative writing exercises the talked about recently. Today's exercise is this: Open the dictionary to a random page. Find a word that you do not know how to define. Write an imaginary definition for it. Repeat.

So here we go. And the first word...
Metamerism - n. - a large egg-like object found inside of large quantities of horse dung often used in villages found in Guatemala to cure osteoporosis. It is believed the calcium found inside will fill the calcium deficiencies.

Ichnite - n. - inside part of bark found when ripped off birch trees. Used by the Malayan tribe to start fires with out flint or heat.

Now it's your turn. Grab a dictionary or go here. Then make up a definition in the comment section.
