When Nouns become Verbs

It’s funny how nouns become verbs. If you want to search something on the Internets, the term often used is “to Google it”. In a similar way, whenever my brother Omar, and his best friend Adeel would get into an argument, they would engage in name calling. Being die hard Beatles fans, instead of using four letter words, they’d call each “Lennon”, their least favorite Beatle.

Cathleen and I do something similar. We’ve associated certain names to certain attributes that people in our lives posses. As you might have figured, these attributes are usually of the negative type. And thus, those names shall not be revealed.
