Word of the Day: Spill-proof

Spill-proof (adj.)

1. A misnomer created by marketers that have never been within a 20-foot radius of a toddler;

2.  A term that should not be confused with “squeeze-proof”;

3.  A product guarantee immediately viewed as a challenge by, er, precocious children;

4.  The reason I had to change my clothes and my daughter’s clothes, as well as stuff the entire stroller in the washing machine this morning.

Sentence usage:

“Look at how drenched your child is! You must have given her a spill-proof smoothie.”

More Storktionary terms…

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
