    Poppysmic
    "Refers to the noise produced by smacking the lips together. It comes from the Latin poppysma, via the defunct French popisme. Romans used the original for a kind of lip-smacking, clucking noise that signified satisfaction and approval, especially during lovemaking. In French, it referred to the tongue-clicking tsk-tsk sound that riders use to encourage their mounts." It's the sound that your lips make when you smack them together; that's what it was defined as on the movie "Love Happens": which I'm watching/listening to as my right index finger types. Jennifer Aniston plays an endearing role.
