A RANDOM LANGUAGE THOUGHT
I’ve recently begun thinking that we should take everyday verbs and create proper-name oriented slang for them.
It’s a nod to Buffyspeak and also provides corporate naming opportunities, like those that already exist for things like arenas and potentially, subway stations.
We could call it Kvetchese (or Baby Fish Mouth, since I’m sure it will be sweeping the nation).
On Sunday morning, I Tropicanaed and Quaker Oated. A little while later, I Niked out of my apartment, and Starbucked over to 81st Street for a meeting. Since there were no seats, I Metrocarded up to the store on 101st, where I finally managed to Sumatra Decaf my way through a grande java bev. After Carrie Bradshawing my way through my column, I returned home for some righteous Netflixing.
