precrestination

(名詞) 到牙醫診所洗牙之前將自己的牙齒徹底刷乾淨的行為;平常不刷牙,只有碰到「特殊情況」(如要看牙醫或打算跟某人接吻) 才刷牙的習慣。
precrestinator (名詞):上述行為者。

注意:precrestination 與 procrastination (延遲;耽擱) 的拼字非常相似。

例句:

  • I ate lots of Oreo's and then committed precrestination before going to my dentist appointment. (我吃了一堆 Oreo 餅乾,所以我先把牙齒刷乾淨才去看牙醫)
  • Boy: Do you think precrestination is a bad habit? (男:妳認為平常不刷牙是一種壞習慣嗎?)
    Girl: Are you kidding me? You should be brushing your teeth everyday twice a day at least. If you're a precrestinator, I'm out of here. (女:你是在開玩笑嗎? 你要每天刷牙,一天至少刷兩次。如果你是個平常不刷牙的人,我就馬上走人)
