A Charmed Life

you know you are getting old(er) when…


Until recently I thought the term ‘twerk’ was the official word for the act of writing on Twitter aka tweeting. Now that I know what it is I am wondering WHY? Why there has to be a specific word for it ? Why it needs to be validated by being added to the Oxford dictionary ? Is it really a word we will refer to in years to come ? Could it not just come under Booty Shake or Dirty Dancing ? It is hardly an actual dance form like a waltz or the hustle is it ? It just seems another way for younger people to get attention. I was young once so I understand. I did a lot of obnoxiously try-hardy things to get attention none of which however made it into the Oxford dictionary (and thank god for that).
