Thinking of warmer weather in the dead cold of January, I was reminded of a time when the web was something spiders spun, and spiders crawled outside, feed was something you gave farm animals, a mouse was a rodent, crop was something you grew and harvested, tweet was what birds did, post was delivered to your front door, load was something that was carried or hauled, link was on a chain, click was a noise, text was a type of book, dig(g) was done with a shovel, and logs came from forests. Words came from lexicons, PC was politically correct, and Mac was a hamburger.
The mouse, after hearing a bird’s tweet, ran from the crop he was feeding on, stumbled upon a spider web and a spider crawling around a chain link fence post. Immediately, he logged onto his Mac, clicked on a blog, charged his cell, and started texting a tweet so when his friends received his feed about the endangered farm, they could digg it.
Just when you think you’ve got the hang of it, words evolve. Make sure you keep up with changes so your usage remains up-to-date.
