  1. Neal,

    This was wonderfully strange. I enjoyed it very much. I keep imagining sitting next to this guy on a long flight.
    Thanks you for sharing.

  2. Thanks Chad!

    Hey, look at that – I’m a “diverse and fascinating host” now. It says it right up there in the description!

  3. I’ve heard of both Hoover and Biro being used as replacement nouns, but I’ve been exposed to many things from other countries since I was pretty young. We do have Hoover vacuum cleaners in the US, but a Biro pen would be rather difficult for the average person here to find or even know about.

    I think a good example for Americans to think of would be Kleenex. Most people use that as a replacement noun for (facial) tissues, which isn’t so bad because facial tissues sounds rather odd and a bit morbid. It’s also a good thing that the trend of shortening the name of something down to the adjective that starts it hadn’t caught on when facial tissues became commercially common.

  4. Thanks for the comments here and elsewhere. And thanks Frank for hosting it and Manny, Brian and others who encouraged me to do something. H

    ope to make an “Over Your Head” at least every fortnight, but the next one will be later than planned because of a recent family event. You cannot talk about topics like this in a house that’s full of visitors who labour under the misapprehension that you’re sain!
