Remember when it drove you a little nutty when people made verbs out of nouns? Now it’s so common, we don’t even question it. In our little neighborhood, everyone around the park has a porch, and in the fall, we take turns inviting neighbors for a Saturday evening get-together. The tradition has come to be called ‘porching.’ Sitting on a porch and chatting while consuming libation. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
As a writer and an editor, the term still makes me a little red-pen-y (my new idiom for ‘needing to circle word with red pen and add a question mark.’)
When an event notice came out this week that the city approved us to have a bonfire near the river bluff, the title had me reaching for my red pen. “We’ll be Bonfiring Sunday!” Okay, the person who sent this is going to hear a few choice grammar rules from me Sunday—whilst I’m marshmallowing and smoreing!
What are your favorite nouns that have become verbs?
Hope you all are great-day-ing!
