Represtartings, and other new words

From: Denise Zenier

Dear Tom and Ray,

In Wisconsin, we have an even longer word with a curious property. Your word "restarting" is just the beginning...

Here goes:

prestarting - starting up your car before your wife goes out so it can be all toasty on those cold mornings.

e-prestarting - using your electronic remote starter to do the prestarting.

represtarting - prestarting the car again because it ran out of gas because your wife was too busy talking to her mother on the phone to get off it and get her butt moving.

represtartings - the reason given on the papers filed with the court for the divorce.

There you go... 14 letters!
