Peter, I was just telling Jamison about a time when we were kids and you were telling me what it meant to take the Lord’s name in vain. You were, I think, afraid to actually verbalize the phrase so you instead chose to change the possessive pronoun: “It’s like when you say ‘oh your God'”.

At the time I faked knowing what the heck you were talking about, but to this day I appreciate you taking the time to explain it to me.

You sure do talk fancy.

As long as the word “bling” doesn’t appear here anytime soon, I think I can make my peace with language as a dynamic construct.

But language is a moving target, and that particular one is moving fast. I let it go about 4 years ago on “begs the question” meaning “begs to ask the question” instead of its original meaning of assuming the conclusion as a premise in a syllogism (i.e. a circular argument).

(this is where Jay steps in to point out that “beg the question” doesn’t really mean that)

I don’t think I ever did that for Andrew. Sorry about that, bro; if you want, I can do some Ezekiel for you next time around.

Jonathan is one amazing little boy!
