"Seeing" things a little differently
Have you ever stepped off the edge of a curb to find it is steeper then you anticipated?
Have you ever stepped off of that last step and thought the ground was closer to you then it actually is?
have you ever groped around in the pitch black darkness and that step down just isn’t there?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions then you have experienced “Disconjoltulation” (pronounced exactly as it looks.)
Disconjoltulation – (dis-con-jolt-u-la-tion) The body’s reaction to a sudden, unexpected ground level imbalance.
Disconjoltulated – past tense. I felt very “disconjoltulated.”
Disconjoltulating – Her body was disconjoltulating after she missed the last step.
Word derived from discon(bobulate), jolt(sudden movement), ulation(just sounded good.)
Orgin of said word -
In 1960 I was born with a severe birth disorder resulting in several eye issues causing me to live with low vision and my eyes not adapting easily to light and dark quickly. The compilation of these issues made cause for hundreds of opportunities for my body to experience an instantaneous “dance” or body movement after misjudgment of steps, edges, uneven ground or darkness. For years I would laugh it off as just being clumsy or goofy but I have determined this is a body movement that most of us has experienced at least once. hence the new word…Disconjoltulation.
