Sometimes words come about gradually. You hear them for a while before noticing and adopting them into your vocabularly. Sometimes your work or studies require you to coin a new word so as to avoid using a sentence over and over when the new bon mot will do quite nicely. And then sometimes, the world suddenly gives birth to a glorious, brilliant, and beautiful new word just as the Greek god Zeus gave birth to the wise, powerful, and beautiful goddess Athena by pulling her out of his split-open head.*

I’ve been practicing lockiness all this time, without ever realizing it.
I like Paul’s Awesome English Dictionary.
Last night I drank so much that my lockiness invented its own language and woke up in a different country, again.
