The Word of the Day for October 21 is:

trichotillomania


WITHOUT consulting Webster first...does anyone know what this word means?

If you don't know the actual definition - make a creative guess!

When you can't seem to find the right parts for your car, or the right thing to say to your old lady.
The voices make you yank your hair out!
Not from websters I just have a ting about needing to know what makes me do stuff.:partyon:

I'd like to reply, but my wife has a slight case of it. It really makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes.

trichotillomania (tree' ko til o may ne ah) n. 1. an unusually high enthusiasm for tricho polyester made leisure suits. This mania saw it's peak in the 1970's when John Travolta starred in "Saturday Night Fever". Also a favorite material of the Bee Gees.

Trichotillomania

Wow, that's a tricky one. Is it anything like Tracheotittomania, now I have had that before, but I've never heard of Trichotillomania. What is it really?

Well done, folks! We got some creative guesses and even the right answer a few times!

Here is the official definition:


trichotillomania • \trih-kuh-tih-luh-MAY-nee-uh\ • noun
: an abnormal desire to pull out one's hair

Example sentence:
Randolph’s affliction with trichotillomania left him with an unfortunate array of bald spots along the crown of his head.

:surprised :surprised
