new words

Image result for merriam webster
every year new words get formed
we my wife she and i notice new words just pop into
our use

the latest one we learned when friends were visiting
i asked what does that mean
they said
just gts it
gts it
what do you mean gts
you know
google that stuff

my wife she and i
well especially her
says to me when i ask what that means
she says
gts it
with a smirk i might add

i looked at this website that listed words that were new
by the year they were introduced
you know
google it

i remember when i first heard that on my garden show
i heard the gardener guru say
just have them google it
i went to see what google meant
there was no google to google it
to see what it meant

we have come a long way havent we
just yesterday our screen door on our condo
wouldnt close good
i just googled how to adjust a screen door that wont close
there was a picture and explanation
on how to do it

that google
best word ever developed

where did you get that
oh i amazoned it yesterday
it was on my porch when i got up this morning

i wanted this particular liquid fertilizer i used in texas
since i couldnt find it here
i amazoned it
it was on our steps the next day
how do that do that i asked someone last night

google it they said

merriam webster dictionary folks have a site
you can type in the year to see what words
were developed that year
i picked out
the year i was born 1950
the year i graduated from high school 1968
the last year listed 2016

here are some examples

in 2016
there was just one word
utility token whatever that is

in 1950
action figure antimatter baby oil beautiful people
boobaby cardiac arrest charge card dwi dry wall
fold out mccarthyism pap smear shopping mall
sweat equity tank top
wonder what words they used for these things
before 1950

in 1968
alt key blind carbon copy better known now as bcc
car seat correction fluid chairbroil do rag m16
peace sign peace symbol talk radio travelers diarrhea

so i would say the most important word that has
come around since 1950
google it
gts it

ok ill add amazon

these have changed things  a lot
ill add

the organicgreen doctor
