Your speech changes over the years according to the life you take on. If that life includes children, your speech changes dramatically -- not so much in the words you say, but in what those words mean. Here are two examples from my weekend.
"We were up all night; I got almost no sleep."
Then: Well, for SOME people, I suppose, this indicated a rather eventful and, *ahem* ADULT evening. (For me it meant I was helping my cokehead neighbor paint his house, but that's another story.)
Now: Barfing child.
"I never know who I'll wake up with."
Then: I'm not gonna explain that; it means what you think it means (for clarity, not something I ever actually said -- not even remotely).
Now: Antsy kids changing beds in the middle of the night and/or currying favor with one or another parent; barfing likely.
So I'm off to bed now to try to catch up on some missed sleep, and hope no one barfs on me. But really, I wouldn't care too much and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't wake up.
