How do you feel about nouns that get turned into verbs? Do you have a favorite or one that annoys you? Like, are you adulting today or Halloweening later?

Only if you can pick it up and eat it, without everything falling out.
Open-faced are messy and get eaten with a fork and knife.

But if you fold an open faced sandwich down the middle, does it make it a half sandwich?

In this case, since it's really a pizza, you can't fold a sandwich down the middle. It's not a sandwich with one slice of bread. If you fold your pizza down the middle it's a taco.

Like most rural peoples, I carry a pocket knife. So for me, I reckon it鈥檇 come down to whether I feel like eating a sandwich or a taco 馃

It comes down to do you have a knife handy.

That makes it a closed-face open-face sandwich.
Still not a sandwich proper.

I rather like the word "criming."

Ex: Tr渭mp is criming again.

It's succinct and coveys clear meaning.

Corporate verbifying is often silly, and requires a longer explanation than what it's trying to replace.

Language lives. When words are widely adopted, it means they serve a purpose.

I don't mind most of them. I dislike abbreviating words like "convo" or "vacay." It just irritates me for absolutely no reason.馃し鈥嶁檧锔

Only if you cut it in half, & sandwich them together. If you fold it, it鈥檚 a taco 馃尞

Well, if you're not adulting, then you're kidding. As for Halloweening, you're never too old for events that involve partying and/ or candy swapping.

I hate the term adulting. As if being an adult we can choose to do anything another way.

I am a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and that show took a torch to the rules, and I found it delightful. I am sick of the term adulting, but mostly I'm a fan of mixing and matching and making new words. It's fun!
