I’m not sure how your family actively studies vocabulary, but we have our own unique strategy around here: give birth to a geekling.
Our 15-year-old has a new passion, and I can always tell, because a whole new crop of words begin cropping up in his daily conversations. Now I like to think of myself as somewhat of a word nerd, but I quickly realize I am out of my league when the following arcana starts to infiltrate our life:
Root (and I don’t mean like the plant!)
I kind of get the whole “desperate parent” thing Jon Voight has going on. It is not exactly easy to be completely bypassed by the person who was asking you to help them tie their shoes not long ago!
So to stay in step with my son it means I have to embrace the idea of Linux.
Lordy, do I feel old today.
