Julieism - worricane

Example: Don’t even mention marriage around Jane right now. She’s still reeling from the worricane she had last Valentine’s Day, when her fortune cookie told her she should learn to enjoy solitude.

    1. Haha, thank you! I’m glad they amuse someone besides myself 🙂

  1. This one is absolutely brilliant, Julie! It has a similar feeling as the swedish word for angst/anxiety, Ångest. I don’t know what it is about just “ångest” it’s somehow more potent. Worricane seems like a good companion for ångest! 😉

    1. Thanks, Fredrik! I love that “ångest” exists in the Swedish language, and I agree– there is just something about the word that cries DRAMA!

      1. Ångest – the muffled sound of your soul slowly being suffocated by ghosts in your own head. Funny thing though! Some people translate it “steam horse” as a joke. Ånga is steam and if you say it, ång-est, it sounds a little like ånghäst – häst being horse.Thus, steam horse! haha

        1. Ahaha, NOW I will think of a horse blowing angry steam out its nose every time I hear the word ‘angst’. Great image! Thanks for sharing that!

  2. Ha ha…this is so me. Love it!

    1. Thanks! I find it very appropriate for book-related matters 😉

  3. Such a good word. Presumably inspired by Bob Dylan’s ‘Worricane’.

    1. That, or Scorpion’s ‘Stress You Like A Worricane.’

What’s the word?
