Words I Realized: Rhettin


rhettin [ret-in], n – lingering warmth left on a seat by its previous occupant

I strongly dislike having to sit in other people’s residual butt warmth.  Not sure why I’m so turned off by it.  Maybe it’s because it brings me unnecessarily close to characteristics of my friend’s tooshie that I’m just not that interested in. Maybe it’s because the balmy feel of rhettin against my backside reminds me that this particular patch of warmth came from deep inside another person.  My friend Tom is a great guy.  I very much enjoy his company.  But I don’t really want to be warmed by the visceral heat from his booty.

Sophie had an unhealthy obsession with Carlton.  This was evident when she buried her face in the sofa to soak up his rhettin when he got up to get a Diet Peach Snapple.

Wait, rhettin?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?
