Wordfuse

unloathe (verb):  unload + loathe = the action of unloading one's passionate frustration, anger and even hatred (may involve expelling what one needs to say with such force that spittle is forthcoming); often inspired as a reaction to general incompetence (insert name of currently hated politician here) or hormones, or low blood-sugar or perhaps when dealing with someone who repeatedly confirms they are going to do something that they indeed, never do. Ever. (Despite being deliciously cathartic, this practice is not usually recommended, especially between spouses/partners; instead just go into the bathroom, turn the fan and/or taps on and let 'er rip.): After his mother criticised her hair, house-keeping skills and Butterball turkey (all within a span of 15 minutes), his wife turned to him, made eye contact that could wither flowers and that's when, his eyes pleading, he whispered, don't unloathe right now; it's Thanksgiving honey, I'm begging you. See Sue Sylvester for plenty of other examples.

(Happy Thanksgiving US peeps. Hope your little family reunions are uh, calm.)

And to you, Canuck. Happy Belated Thanksgiving. I un-unloathe you. No, wait, that makes it sound like I loathe you without spittle. I un-unlike you.

This is a fine word. Sadly there are endless opportunities to use such a word in my day to day life.

Thanks. You, too.

Not too much drama in our family trees this year, thank goodness.

@Nicole I un-unloathe you too and I'll raise you one double un-unlike you.
@LoC Use it and smile. Maybe it will help you deal.
@Mrs.444 I'm glad to hear that but the weekend isn't over.
@Alittlesprite Your use of ellipsis makes me a little nervous. Put the knife down.
@VinnyC But does she spit while she does it? It's really not unloathing without that part.
@tim I get it. Don't you work with young people?
@Mrs.Tuna No turkey for us in Canada. We had grilled cheese sandwiches for supper tonight with no spittle in sight, thankfully.
@Missy Me too.
