Entry: omniwetness (n.)

In context: "It had had a lemony, low-cal taste, the boy's omniwetness."

Definition: Neologism, though I guess omni- just about anything is okay.  omni-:   Forming compounds in which the first element has the sense ‘in all ways or places’, or ‘of all things’.

Other: I'm not sure that the above sentence gets less creepy when you learn more of Lyle, the taster, though he seems basically benevolent.
