    I decided to look up in a dictionary all the words that start with "pre." It turns out that there are some really great words there. Here's a sample from Merriam-Webster's:

    preciprocate (verb) : to do something deliberately in order to receive something in return.

    precognizance (noun) : knowledge or awareness of event prior to actual occurrence.
    Precognizance is the knowledge of events before they occur. "Amanda was blessed with precognizance, so she did not board Flight 800. Later it crashed and she was safe at home."

    precouperate
    (verb) : To rest prior to an activity or event in preparation.
    I have so much to do on Sunday that I need to precouperate on Saturday. —Lisa Van Bogget, Lisa Van Bogget, 09/29/07

    Precrastinate
    (verb) : Developing a deliberate plan to avoid making a decision or action. also Precrastinator, Precrastination, Precreastiloutionary
    Sam told Ellen that it is easy to precrastinate, simply clain to need information from others and send them off on impossible tasks.

    pregaming
    (verb) : to drink alcoholic beverages in one's domicile before heading out to a bar, club, party, etc., in order to prepare one's self for a social setting; a mini-party before the actual party that helps a person loosen up
    I have found that pregaming at my place really helps me save money at the bar because I don't have to buy a lot of drinks.

    pregret (verb) : to regret something that one is about to do.

    prehave
    (verb) : To plan to be really good before you are really bad.
    You better prehave before you break curfew so you can receive a lesser punishment when you get caught. —Amber Lee, ESL student's mistake on a prefix lesson, November 7, 2007

    Premature Discardation (other) : The act of throwing something away just BEFORE you realize you need it.
    Dang, I had one of those, but it was premature discardation. —unknown

    prepair (verb) : To fix something that isn't broken... yet. To fix in advance. Also, a misspelling of "prepare."
    There's a storm coming. I'll get the duct tape to prepair the screen door.

    presearch

    This one's cool too:
    presocentric (adjective) : One that is focused on the present moment, and unable to consider past or future times.
    The woman was struck by the beauty she saw and became presocentric. The monk tried to live most of his life in a presocentric state.

    I strive to be presocentric myself.

    I also plan to use my Pre for some precognizance.

    Maybe it initially started out as an acronym:

    PRE = Palm Risking Everything

    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    "To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.
