How odd would that have sounded 15 years ago?
“I’m sorry, what do you want me to do to it? Is that legal in all 50 states?”
I think it’s safe to say that everyone has at some point in the past year told someone else to “Google it.” And when I say everyone, I really do mean everyone.
The other day I was visiting a friend that had just had a baby. There were quite a few of us there all discussing different things. Some debated the number of Weight Watcher points that were in the cookies I brought. A few were planning a lunch date without the kids. The older set (my mom and aunts) were talking about the locations of olive trees on random streets around the Bay Area. I don’t know about other Arab cultures, but I know for sure Palestinian women pick olives (always with the land owner’s permission) to brine/cure. My aunt was telling my mom about one specific street that was full of trees bursting with olives. My aunt was trying her hardest to explain the location to my mom who was just not able to map it out into her mental GPS. Finally my aunt told her… “Google it.”
Googling (is that a word?) the locations of olive trees. Awesome.
In the past week I’ve Googled:
- activities for a 3 year old
- 30 Rock Tina Fey office set
- huge balloons
- moon and star punch
- baby food recipes
- gray and yellow (for images)
Not my most interesting week in Google, but pretty random stuff. What have you Googled lately?
