i was at work the other day and katie used the phrase ‘gapping out’ when i was staring off into space. turns out to her and sam ‘gapping out’ is interchangeable with ‘spacing out.’ they are best friends so i have a suspicion that this is either something they made up and subsequently forgot it wasn’t universal, or is some sort of west coast slang with which i’m unfamiliar. there is of course a third option that the language of the kids today is already confusing and impenetrable to an elderly person like myself – but that is quite frankly insulting and unthinkable. so dear readers i am initiating my first poll.
