Sherry gave me an idea, but it got me to thinking. The Dirty Sanchez is a sexual act, but who coined the phrase? Things like Butterflies, and Missionaries are sexual positions, but where did the names of these positions come from? I’m sure a Gloryhole, is glorious, but why not a Joyhole? Probably the only thing sexual I get as to why they are named thus is Doggie Style, and 69. But who coined the phrase 69? Did one guy say to his buddy, “ Hey when me and her are doing this, it looks like a 69″, then his buddy agrees with him, and tells his friends, and it spreads from there.
To me the English language is amazing, I say a word it conjures an idea, though your idea might be a little different then mine, it shares commonality. That commonality is our shared reality. For example, I say the word, “Chair” . We all get a vision of a piece of furniture that someone might sit in. Our chairs might be different, yours might be large and comfy, while mine might be a hard metal folding chair. Their both chairs though, and that…that is our reality.
Now the question begs to be asked, was the idea there before we put a word to it. These are the things Socrates, and the ancient philosophers argued about. Is the idea eternal, and always there and we just finally put a word to it.
So have we been doing it doggie style for eons, and finally one day someone said hey that looks like two dogs, or did someone say hey look at those two dogs we can do that.
So next time your spooning someone, or being spooned take a moment to wonder….what the hell does this have to do with spoons.
