Time Traveler

.

After reading a friend’s post a few days ago ( Hi Grace! ) I followed her lead and searched for the new words that were added to the dictionary the year I was born.

( Yes smart asses, they had dictionaries back then. The stone tablet pages were just harder to turn. )

Let’s take a look shall we?

I admit to having to look up anxiolytic…. which was stressful and might make me reach for one.

.

Being the last year of the boomers, I was surprised to see it took that long for the phrase to be admitted.

.

Baggie and banana seat? Both of those were featured prominently in my formative years…. and for completely different reasons.

😉

I only got halfway through the definition of bioturbation.

When I came to the defecation of sediment grains part? I figured I’d heard enough.

.

But damn, call forwarding and call waiting? I don’t want to be blamed for those.

  1. Naturally, I just HAD to go check this out. And it looks like I will be occupied for quite some time, as there are a ton of words, many of which I have never even seen before and I must find out what they mean. Cleaning the kitchen will just have to WAIT. 😉

  2. Why did the Belgian Malinois take so long to get into circulation? They’re fun, playful dogs and from what I can find they’ve been around for centuries. It must be the small size of Belgium. And as a member of Gen-X I’m kind of embarrassed to say we were supposed to fix the mistakes Boomers made. Instead we invented Grunge and improv classes. So we have a lot to answer for.
    But don’t tell the Millenials I said that.

  3. Bioturbation is excellent! I love it! Very important for soil health. Those little soil people need protection – stay away from weedkiller substances and phosphate rock fertiliser folks. Here’s a great word: guano. It’s bird and bat poop and it’s the best fertiliser there is.
