Not once, but twice this week, from two different people, have I heard the phrase “half price apps.”
I assumed they meant apps, as in those things you download and play on your phone, but then I realized what they were talking about, which was…appetizers.
I’m not a huge appetizer person. Most of the time I can’t eat whatever is in them, or they just sound…well, unappetizing, which is kind of antithetical to the point of the word. The only appetizers that I take seriously are tuna tataki and bruschetta; pretty much everything else seems to be just “here, pay us more money for less food.”
But when did they become known as apps? That’s what I’d like to know. Is this new terminology, or is it just our cult. of shortening thgs? (C wat I dd thr?)
