    Now that you mention it, Destiny, maybe ‘phone’ will lose its real meaning, like ‘gay’ used to mean happy, and ‘organic’ used to describe a life form that has/had organs, or something that affects organs.

    If she put half as much effort into her math studies, she wouldn’t have to be asking Jason for help all the time … stereotypical blonde twit.

    Does Paige’s phone have texting? I thought way back in the days before smartphone apps, you could tweet by sending a text to a particular number – or was that texting to an email address? I never did it myself.

    Way back in the days…
    When I was Paige’s age you had to be a bird to tweet….

    I’ve tried twice to become a twitterer and cancelled the account both times. Talk about dumbing down!

    And “dial.” I have seen dial phones (phones with dials? I’m not even sure what to call them), but I’ve never actually used one. “Dialing” now has nothing to do with an actual dial.

    You are absolutely right Night Gaunt49. It is a sad day when we can not say that a person seems so gay today, they were positively beaming. Or that family from up in Primrose Hollar are sure a queer lot. No sir. This day and age we have to be so careful what we say. I am afraid to call the old banker in town a niggardly old skinflint.

    I grew up with rotary dial phones. I think it was my second job, after the Marine Corps, where I started to use a push button phone. Good thing too, It was as a telephone salesman.

    Maybe because the homosexuals use the term to describe themselves as well. As for gay still meaning happy, call a guy gay and check his reaction.

    Does anyone pay attention to tweets outside the entertainment industry?

    re:nenewed

    True. They usually called themselves “queer” when I was in Portland and Ashland, OR. I haven’t paid enough attention to their subculture locally to know what they call themselves here. (Like with the druggies and GenX women who used to use me as a sympathetic ear, after enough years I got to where I couldn’t handle people hurting themselves/hurting others and had to stop.)
    .
    The acronym “gay” was begun in Britain. A gay bar used the phrase “good as you” and that is where “gay” came from. It’s interesting that they don’t like the term they themselves came up with. I suppose “queer” will also go the same route: they invent the term, then later dislike it.
    .
    It’s not uncommon to create a term, then to dislike it. “Black” was once used as meaning “black pride” etc. Then it became “afro” and “african” which most people naturally don’t use (including the black members of my family) because of at least 3 races being native to Africa.
