Jack’s Winning Words 12/7/18
“Time moves in one direction, memory in another.” (William Gibson) Do you know the significance of these numbers? 12/7, 9/6, 9/11, 1492? I read an article on what enables us to recognize and recall. Everyone doesn’t have the same cognitive skills…often depending on age an experience. For example, how about these expressions? Glo-up, That’s Boss, Ankle-Biter, In Cahoots! Part of understanding one another often depends on recognizing their slang.! ;-) Jack
FROM JB INOLV: 9/6 is a trick question........a child is born...it is a biblical reference. The rest are obvious.☺===JACK: I should have known that I couldn't fool you.===JB: You did make me really think twice.....you should write questions for Jeopardy:)
FROM WALMART REV: You don't say!===JACK: I remember a comedy skit. A guy answers the phone..."You don't say!...Hummm...You don't say....You don't say!" The 2nd guy asks, "Who was that?" The 1st guy answers: "He didn't say!"
FROM FACEBOOK LIZ: i rely on urban dictionary a lot when communicating w/younger people. i also look up slang/idiomatic expressions from my generation to determine whether they will know what i am talking about. we will recognize those of our own generation in heaven bc of our common language, music and taste... see ya there someday!===JACK: A writer from the Detroit area, Mitch Albom, has written a book: The Five People
