Old Words

Hi Everyone!

Did you know old words are updated with new meanings?
Well if you didn’t here are a couple that have new meanings.

Snowflake:
Now used to mean both “someone regarded or treated as unique or special” and “someone who is overly sensitive.”
Purple:
Extending the blending of red and blue to the metaphorical level, purple can now refer to geographical areas where voters are split between Democrats and Republicans.
Peak:
Metaphorically extended to mean “being at the height of popularity, use, or attention,” as in “peak television” (or maybe “peak word nerd”).

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
