What words appeared in print for the first time the year you were born?
Some of mine were:
- battered woman syndrome
- 800-pound gorilla (I have no idea what that even means. I guess the word didn’t age as well as I did).
- butterfly effect
- couch potato (ouch! But if the shoe fits…)
- extra virgin
- white zinfandel
- restless leg syndrome
- enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
What about you?
