Nouns and Verbs

5 05 2005

According to an email I got today from a friend who lives back in Jersey (Joisey??) you can now add Swiffer, to the list of Products that can be used as verbs. LIke Google and Tivo before it, Swiffer (which, for those of you who don’t know, is basically a dust mop made up of completely synthetic products) can now be used in sentences about things That People Do.

As in “My husband swiffers the floors every night before leaving work” or “She told them that she wasn’t going to take the job if it consisted of too much Swiffering.”
