I have a guy who checks the timbers of my house for those pesky things.
Yeah, I'd hate to be termited, and if I were, I'm pretty sure it would be DEstructive, not CONstructive.

Yeah, that word came from the lawyer's web page. I probably should have added "[sic]." I was wondering if "termited" was a legal term that I had not known before. Like, since she was "constructively termited [sic]" did she fall apart at her very foundation?
