"Seriously, FirstClass?" (A short tragicomedy)

  • FirstClass: Did you mean “bog?”
  • Me: Seriously? “Blog” is a word that was coined in 1997 to describe a web-log, a sort of online journal. This site is a blog, for example.
  • FirstClass: Hmm…FirstClass was created in the early 1990s. Maybe I am too old to know this word.
  • Me: But surely your built-in dictionary is has been updated in the last two decades! How about the word “Google?”
  • FirstClass: What?
  • Me: *sigh*
