Word to Your Motha: Sextuplicate
I opened the dictionary this morning, and what did I find but sextuplicate. What a wonderful word. Plus, there’s tons of potential uses for it in the workplace. And, bonus, it’s a noun, verb and adjective – it’s practically everything – so it offers a lot of versatility.
Sextuplicate – 1. n. A group, set or series of six identical copies (usually preceded by “in”). 2. adj. Having or consisting of six identical parts. 3. v. To make six copies of (something).
For it’s use in a sentence I would first like to focus on the verb form of the word.
Setting: Busy office.
Characters: Male boss talking to female employee with a bunch of male interns.
“Cindy, I need you to take the office keys and show the interns how to sextuplicate them.”
“How dare you, sir,” Cindy scoffed, slamming papers down on the desk. “I’ll do no such thing. This is 2013, and that kind of talk is grounds for a lawsuit.”
“I don’t know what you are talking about,” the boss replied, baffled, “but I want you to take the boys and do it in sextuplicate today.”
Cindy storms out of the office, slamming the door behind her.
The use at first may be a little confusing, I concede. It’s a word so rare not even WordPress recognizes it, which makes me smarter than my computer. Take that computer! But our mission is to educate, and educate we will. Consequences be damned.
