Remember that word? Gleek. No, I’m not talking about someone who watches Glee. I’m referencing that odd way of spitting.
I hadn’t thought of that word in like 15 years. Until the other day while I was talking with a co-worker and I gleeked right in the middle of the conversation. It was totally obvious, and hilarious. I had no problem remembering what it was called either.
That’s the point. Stuff like that, it sticks with you. I have no idea why but it does. I think most businesses would KILL to have that kind of memory space reserved in consumers. No one intended gleeking to catch on or stay relevant. It was just a name giving to that specific kind of spitting. It was accidental.
Oh, and if you’ve never gleeked, check out this very awesome instructional video on how to gleek.
