pwait - reverse psychology in a game -- pretending to be eager for something one dreads.

Funkytuba pwaited one of the players by declaring "Bales, this round I have no problem with multiple entries, so enter away!"

pwait - those little cards that fall out of magazines; from "postal weight", the insertion of the cards is carefully calibrated to get within half an ounce of the maximum postal weight without going over into another cost category; hence, the cards themselves, or, by extension, any additional insertion into any postal package to get up to the weight category's max.

"Hey, anybody got anything to send gramma?" Funkytuba shouted to his family. "We've got about half a pound for pwait!"

pwait - the sound of an air kiss.

When Madonna and Britney met, it was initially just a pwait, but it turned almost immediately into a wet, lingering therblig.

pwait - the indistinguishable word sounds from a distant loudspeaker.

"Pwait the therblig metemptosis and snatch block a galactagogue with shrieval fantoccini" the loudspeaker said. So we did that, and we still waited another hour to board the plane.

pwait excl., a cross between an acronym and doublespeak used prior to an urgent trip to the rest room.

Charlie begged pwait while the movie was about to begin, and Lisa headed into the dark theater eager to see the story, casually catching the code.

Boring old reality (in this case, particularly boring)

NAME
proc, pflags, pcred, pmap, pldd, psig, pstack, pfiles, pwdx,
pstop, prun, pwait, ptree, ptime - proc tools

SYNOPSIS
/usr/bin/pflags [ -r ] [ pid | core ] ...
/usr/bin/pcred [ pid | core ] ...
/usr/bin/pmap [ -rxlF ] [ pid | core ] ...
/usr/bin/pldd [ -F ] [ pid | core ] ...
/usr/bin/psig pid ...
/usr/bin/pstack [ -F ] [ pid | core ] ...
/usr/bin/pfiles [ -F ] pid ...

/usr/bin/prun pid ...
/usr/bin/pwait [ -v ] pid ...
/usr/bin/ptree [ -a ] [ [ pid | user ] ... ]
/usr/bin/ptime command [ arg ... ]

DESCRIPTION
The proc tools are utilities that exercise features of /proc
(see proc(4)). Most of them take a list of process-ids
(pid); those that do also accept /proc/nnn as a process-id,
so the shell expansion /proc/* can be used to specify all
processes in the system. Some of the proc tools can also be
applied to core files (see core(4)); those that do accept a
list of either process IDs or names of core files or both.

pflags
Print the /proc tracing flags, the pending and held
signals, and other /proc status information for each
lwp in each process.

pcred Print the credentials (effective, real, saved UIDs and
GIDs) of each process.

pmap Print the address space map of each process.

pldd List the dynamic libraries linked into each process,
including shared objects explicitly attached using
dlopen(3DL). See also ldd(1).

psig List the signal actions of each process. See
signal(3HEAD).

pstack
Print a hex+symbolic stack trace for each lwp in each
process.

pfiles
Report fstat(2) and fcntl(2) information for all open
files in each process.

pwdx Print the current working directory of each process.

pstop Stop each process (PR_REQUESTED stop).

prun Set each process running (inverse of pstop).

pwait Wait for all of the specified processes to terminate.

[...]
OPTIONS
The following options are supported:
[...]
-v (pwait only) Verbose; report terminations to standard
output.

So then on to the entries:

Extremely small braid. The act of forming hair into micro braids, the process is very time consuming often requiring 3-4 full day sessions to complete the process for a person of average shoulder length hair. Pwaiting salons have the longest waiting lists of any hair care establishments due to the ridiculously long treatment necessary.
Evelyn accidentally (some say purposely) set herself up for failure and frustration by micro-managing every aspect of her wedding plans, yet somehow she scheduled the custom pwaiting for her long luxurious hair for only 2 days before the wedding.

As public transportation in the Mayan culture was below average at best, most llama-driven vehicles were already overloaded after their first stop, often not even bothering to stop until someone on board asked to get off. Or fell off due to the aromas emanating from the llama. This caused much frustration to Mayan commuters.
The winner of a game of Pwait was the commuter who was able to stand in place longest without once complaining or sharpening one's spear for use on the llama driver.
xfox receives honor and glory commensurate with Coveted Second Place and something to help keep the wait times short.

But deferring to the peanut gallery, I have to admit that bales's shadowpuppet has a point:

pwait - the indistinguishable word sounds from a distant loudspeaker.
"Pwait the therblig metemptosis and snatch block a galactagogue with shrieval fantoccini" the loudspeaker said. So we did that, and we still waited another hour to board the plane.


...and is, in fact the winner... take it away, Monsieur Bales.

oscheal slang, n.

Term used to describe a situation which is both extremely unfortunate and of great magnitude. Origin: thought to be a combination of the phrases "Oh shit," and "whole schmeal."

As the last of his two thousand head of hogs ran out of the gate, Farmer Ted thought to himself that Bernard the inexperienced ranch hand had caused him his last oscheal.

oscheal -- the ritual or obsessive usage of a phrase, usually at loud volume

Upon arriving at the pub, Pat lapsed into his particular oscheal, "Nutsack! Nutsack! Nutsack! Nutsack! Nutsack! Nutsack! Nutsack!", quickly earning him a none-too-friendly shove out the door.

oscheal - that ossified corner of the cheddar that didn't get wrapped up properly. It is most commonly cut off and fed to the begging dog.

Blanche was disgusted (and secretly pleased) to see that her rival hostess Marie had failed to spot the oscheal before serving the cheese platter to her guests.

Oscheal n.

The milky excretion that surrounds foreign matter that gets within mollusk shells. The material from which pearls are formed.

The marine biologist got a few funny looks when he complimented Janice on her new "oscheal necklace".
