“Selfie” is the top new word of 2013, according to the Oxford Dictionaries. It’s a photo you take of yourself (usually on a cell phone).
Following close behind were:
- Twerk. Thank you, Miley Cyrus, for popularizing this move.
- Binge-watch: viewing a bunch of TV episodes in one sitting.
- Showrooming: looking at a product in a store, then buying it cheaper online (which describes the relationship between Best Buy and Amazon).
I have never, to my knowledge, twerked. However, I’ve taken a few selfies (usually while holding our cat, Jordi). Pam and I occasionally binge-watch. And I admit to showrooming, most frequently at Barnes & Noble.
