I have just experienced fethitwosp. I'm sure you have too at more than one point in your life. Perhaps you even experience it on a regular basis as I haven't found a solution to avoiding it. What is fethitwosp?

Do you experience it on a regular basis? If so, roughly once a day? week? month? year?

Does it involve [LTPF list of senses]?

Is it a painful experience? embarrassing? annoying?

Are any objects involved? other people? animals?

Being online relevant? internet connection relevant? computers in general?

Do you experience it on a regular basis? not personally, but I could If so, roughly once a day? week? month? year? let's say once a week could be a fair estimate

Does it involve [LTPF list of senses]? believe it or not, none of them

Is it a painful experience? no embarrassing? no annoying? annoying is part of it but is not fethitwosp itself

Are any objects involved? yes other people? animals? no, no

Being online relevant? internet connection relevant? computers in general? not at all

does it involve a feeling? in the meaning of sentiment or emotion?

like being fed up with something? cross? happy? surprised?

are the objects involved quite specific? specialised?

are they all instances of one object? or a group of diverse objects?

are they household objects? things you might find in the office? the garden? clothes? food?

Or... horror? Startled? Shocked?

Specific kind of vegetable relevant? Salad greens? Root crop? Legume? Raw/fresh? Frozen? Tinned?

Direct from grocery? From garden? Or had you had the vegetables a while?

is it not being able to get the lid off? SO close or when you do, spilling juice everywhere? that is extremely relevant

and so getting annoyed? I certainly would

Take a lot at the neologism that I invented. Can you work out the actual 'emotion' from it? If not, I'll spiol

You don't like gherkins?? Boo, Shame, Hiss, Tut Tut (and various other expressions of disappoval).

Does the WO SP bit stand for without spilling?

Isn't there great activity on the forum these last few days

Does the WO SP bit stand for without spilling? SP is spilling but WO is not without

This has become too literal rather than lateral, trying to crack the neologism, so here goes:

*********** SPOILER **************

fethitwosp is the FEar THat IT WOuld SPill when opening a jar of pickled onions, beetroot or blerkins. I can't seem to open the jar at a distance, i.e. on the table, and have to hold it against me, risking smelling like, well, a pickled onion all day


Thank you one and all.

Do feel free to share your pickled mishaps with the rest of the class.
