First let me direct you to my pick for "Spread the Word" Thursday
I was going through f8hasit picks for awards and came across this post Funny is the new young. Something every parent with college kids should read or even younger kids to prepare for the day when they are college kids. It can also be used for those unforunate parents that have adult children come back home to live. I loved it and I pretty sure you will too.
Another shout out to f8hasit..Thanks for leading me to some great blogs! Although I still haven't finished with all of the winners (took me all night to do 7 of them), some are right up my alley. Thanks again.
Now on to the title of this post...
My super good friend, sister-in-law Janet and I were chatting on the phone, just random stuff as usual and this subject crossed my mind. What is this subject? I will do my best to put it into words for ya, cause my brain tends to lean towards pics instead of words.
Hold on got to wake up Taco Bell, he's snoring to loud for me to think.
Okay, I'm back...
Words that we use to name something that is the generic version of the name brand. Yeah that didn't come out right! Maybe if I give you an example you might understand my meaning, so here it goes:
Onesies...(Janet's word, BTW) The word Onesies is actually a name brand, but most everyone I know uses the word for all simular outfits.
Are you getting the idea? I hope so, cause that was the best description I could come up with.
Cheerios...(my word) For me this relates to ALL little round, dounut looking, oat, floaties in my milk. No matter what company actually made it. I don't go around saying "I'm going to have a bowl of Hill country Fare: Toasted Oats" LOL
Aspirin...This one is the opposite. Every pain reliever in my house is refered to as Aspirin, wether it be Motrin or Tylenol or Advil. Weird, right? Oh well...
Surely, you get my meaning by now.
So, what are some words you can come up with?
