Why did you chose this word?

“I was given a task to choose a witty word. But I couldn’t choose just one word. So I found this play on words.”

Use it in a sentence!

“We realize life is too short sometimes. And then we see through our real eyes the things in front of us. And face the real lies that confront us.”
