Fictionary Friday - Distance

So here are the rules. I will post a word and its definition. It will be a real word, and its real definition. But then I will create a fictionary definition for the same word, and invite you to do the same. Sound good? Good. Here we go:

Dictionary Definition:
Distance n. the extent or amount of space between two things, points, lines, etc.

Fictionary Definition:
Distance n. the position or bearing of a person while they say something disparaging to someone else. "Did you hear what she said to the teacher?" "Hear her? I could see her distance from the other end of the hallway."


  1. Distance; the Germanic version of Brigadoon (mysterious Scottish village that appears for only one day every hundred years)

    How I wish I could see the distance just once in my life.

  2. Well done. This one is hard.

    Distance (n.) antonym of the word stance, an intellectual or emotional attitude taken in direct opposition only because of someone else's

    "Did you hear that idiot? Just because I said I enjoy buying organic meat, he had to take the distance that organic products are actually bad for the environment! Honestly, he wouldn't have any opinions if it weren't for his distances. Some people are just contrary."


An Extraordinary Comment just for me? Hooray!
