For example

So I got these fabulously glamorous acrylic nails and a french manicure. (This, from a girl who refuses to wear make-up? Welcome to Contradiction City, population: me.) And they're pretty long and pretty impressive. And a Kindergartener says to me, in the way that only a six-year-old can, when life is still simple and every word has its clear and obvious opposite:

"Wow! Your nails are pretty! Are they real or are they pretend?"

You can say "I prentend they're real." Also wanted to share with the editor in you a Mark Twain/ Samual Clemmens quote, "Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very”; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be." This and many more can be found at http://jpetrie.myweb.uga.edu/clemens.html
