jampage (jam’paij’) (v.) The screaming and dancing rampage one goes on when they jam or stub a body part on a household object.
Going on a jampage is never a fun thing. It often involves pain, in so many way. Pain to the person in a jampage, due to them hitting or jamming their foot or elbow on a wall, or door, or other hard surface. Pain to others who might be nearby, as the sounds and foul language caused by a jampage might be so brutal, it might cause their ears to bleed. Sure, one could avoid a jampage by keep one’s shoes on, to prevent jamming toes on doors, but that won’t work on a midnight trip to the washroom down a long, dark hallway. Nor will it protect other body parts that tend to get hit. Elbows on doorjams, hands on desktops, shins on ottomans or stairs… There are so many ways and things that can cause a jampage. If you do not want to be in the line of fire when this does happen, get far away, because the ears you may save might be your own. That furniture that was the offending cause will be lucky it does not have any eyes or ears to see or hear the jampage, but then seeing one without the sound might be pretty funny. Not a theory I’d test out any time soon, though.
