You read that blog post title correctly. "I think my dad may be a spy."
Why you ask?
I was at his house the other day and I asked him if he had the newspaper and he says...are you ready for this?....he says, "Let me get it out of my attache case."
ATTACHE CASE! Case closed. Who uses the "attache case" other than spies? And he may have said "attache' case" with the thingy over the "e" which means....Oh my God. He might be a double agent!
Wow. And here's a fun fact for attache' case: it first came into popular use in 1904. So now you know. Try and use it today in a sentence.
And one more word on words. I'd like to bring the word "solid" back. Not as in, "do me a solid and hand me that cantaloupe scooper" but in it's single usage form. Like when someone says, "I'm going to be taking Linda to the big dance on Friday night!" Then the friend looks at him - nods - and says, "Solid."
If my memory serves me right the word "solid" had it's best years from 1977 - 1979*. Am I right?
*1979 - 1984 if you're from one of the backward states.
