Elizabeth Emerald: 10/1/21 at 9:25 pm:
I was told that someone coined the word SMIZE for smile through a mask. I thought why not SMASK or SMISK?

I am astounded to find that those "obvious" coinages have no google hits.

This is the first time that "my" clever coinages had not been independently invented, multiple times, many years earlier, as evidenced by zillions of google hits.

If you're reading this, kindly bear witness to my creations.

    MissMerri: I'm smizing at your cleverness Liz. To me, the ize stands for eyes, which is the part that smiles when you're wearing a mask. But... it is sometimes difficult to keep smiling when you are forced to wear a mask.
