Does it seem to you that young people speak a different language than we do and that they have a completely different vocabulary? The televised top fuel races where on TV last night but they didn't start until 10:00 pm and lasted three hours. Since I am not the most handsome guy in the world, I need my "beauty" sleep and didn't want to stay up till after 01:00. So I told my wife I was going to "tape" the event and watch it the next day. Now let me tell you, I did record it but I have no way of "taping" it. Does anybody still have and use a tape recorder? Everything now-a-days is digital. So to be "proper", I guess I "recorded" it instead of "taping" it. The only meaning left for that word now is taping up a package with masking tape or Scotch tape or taping a gauze pad on a wound. So taping is becoming an extinct word, just as people from our era our becoming extinct.
There are other extinct words or soon to be extinct words. How long has it been since you have heard someone say, " Whoops-a-daisy"? Or called you "Kooky" Or for that matter I wonder if the young folks of today know how much two bits is? Or a "fin", or a "sawbuck", or a "C-note". I guess the youth of today think the language that someone like me uses, or my grandpa used, is foreign to them. Now, let me put this in a way you should understand, "you all have a great day today, you hear?"
