Wednesday, November 14, 2007It is worth re-posting because sitemeter informs me that visitor #20k came calling at 10:52:38 pm on 20 July 2011. The visitor, from Sarawak, Malaysia, googled for "word inflation". Hopefully I satisfied that itch.
One of Earle's favorite comments was:
"The first fifty years are the hardest."
But I first encountered word inflation, not through Victor Borge's twoderful skit, but when Earle turned 45. Overnight the comment grew:
"The first hundred years are the hardest."
Now is Dum Luk's time. About 11 am PST visitor number 10,000 (according to Sitemeter) came calling from Princeton, New Jersey, in quest of portable beehive ovens.
So now all of you kind readers are "among the lucky first twenty thousand".
Consider yourself, dear reader, to now be among the first fifty thousand visitors. Early adopters all.
