This has little or nothing to do with the outdoors, but maybe you’ve noticed, people are constantly making up new words and expressions. Trouble is, some of my favorites are being forgotten and abused.
I can’t recall the last time I heard anyone say “skedaddle,” which means to leave quickly. Words that describe something or someone good, impressive or attractive are being used less and less, words such as “top notch,” “jim-dandy,” “humdinger,” “lalapalooza” and “doozy.”
