My coinage: malingering: mal- (something bad) + lingering (something 
hanging around)

Dictionary: malingering: to pretend illness, especially in order to shirk 
one's duty, avoid work, etc.

Moral of this story: When coining a new word, make sure it doesn't already 
exist with another meaning.  Sheesh.
