Thank you, George

The other night I was putting away the food. William was around, being useless.

"Fridge this!" I commanded the boy.

"Fridgificate!" he answered, affirmatively.

"...and this." (handing him another tupperware full)

"Fridgify aye aye!" sayeth the boy.

Whatever other legacy survives, only history will tell, but this much is sure: Mr. Bush has given us new language, the slang of the next decade or more, I'll wager.

We owe him huge.
