This incident happens too often enough to warrant creation of its own word:
The act of missing its mark when you're trying to cap your pen/marker and ended up smearing your fingers/palm. It might be followed by a small cursing, depending on the temperemental of the person.So let's see what would be a good word/phrase to describe this phenomenon...:
- capping smear?
- cap smear?
- capping incident?
- capping miss?
- cap miss?
- miscap? <-- hey, got a pun value there!
Opinions, suggestions, all are welcomed. So is an indignant rebuff about first rights to creation of the word... (in that case, *sigh*....)
