    The epitome of colloquial speech is the infamous time-clock reminder: Spring Forward, Fall Back. The fortuitous definitions of the verbs help us to remember the seasonal changes. Alas, Summer and Winter only share a feeble break for limited references in our vernacular. Even Spring steals that word, when needed, though my dad has always wondered why there is no Fall- or Autumn-time.

    Allow me to introduce some neologisms that might someday become as famous as any turn of phrase:

    Bleacon is that nasty strip of leftover breakfast meat that has been refrigerated.

    Thumbing a ride now refers to the use of a mobile phone to hail a Lyft (or Uber), while hitch-hiking describes the curious gait of young men who are determined to amble around town without benefit of belt or suspenders.

    Card-pull Tunnel Syndrome is an ailment that creeps up on unwary credit card users who only pay the minimum balance each month, until the exponential fees have exceeded the retail price of everything ever purchased.
