New words are really old words

old_words

We are so clever with our words–or at least we think we are.  People are always coining new words to fit a situation.    Some words that we think are old have been around for a long time.

Thanks to me friend and fellow writer, Maryjo Morgan, (Fred’s Used Websites) for sending me this Mental Floss article.

Some of the words that have been around a long time are unfriend, dude, hangout, tricked out and puke.
