So, I submitted “kitchen window” to Urban Dictionary.

@Razors Edge wondered why vaccine passport has been added to Merriam-Webster when it’s no different than, say, kitchen window or rear tire. 
So, I have a job to do. Give kitchen window meaning, usage, and cultural relevance so that it gets added to the dictionary for 2022.

Ok, @bikeman564™, so it’s not at the top of your “interest list,” but it could be fun.

Where is your kitchen window link?

what is your definition?

A practical view of a situation. 
The conversation started in the how many words do you know thread, and @jsharrwick gave it a bit of traction in the G needs a job thread. He also used rear tire to mean the same as “retire”, unless I read that wrong. 
Screenshot from the room where it happened.

I was aiming for back burner or place on hold

I like it. Can you use it in a sentence?

Taking the kitchen window view of poetry, a few highly accessible images can have a stronger impact than heavy rhyme.

Love it. It will take me a while to use it properly and effectively.

So, I have closed all of my social media accounts. This would have been easier if I were still on Twitter and Instagram where I had the ear of a couple of local influencers. I can use it in the comments sections of the NYT and in the local paper “Speak Up” section. There are a lot of local issues that require a practical view of the situation. 
 

A few years ago, I taped an image of Harriet Tubman over Andrew Jackson on a few $20 bills before spending them and floated the idea on social media. Nobody took me up on it. The HT twenty seems to be stuck in no-man’s-land, currently. 

Anyway, my success rate with movements is 0-1. We’ll see where this one goes.

We will see how the Urban public votes on its use. 
Meanwhile, I thought this phase was interesting.

LOL, that is hilarious

 

I have a whole list of similar unwords somewhere.

Example: Exhaustipated - meaning "too tired to give a shit"

I especially enjoyed the spelling of "inescpapable".

And I used it in this comment in the NYT, which picked up 3 “recommend” reactions in the two minutes it took between posting and finding it. 
If three more people use it, and then three x three more, and so on, and so on…

Today I learned how remarkably difficult to locate a NYT article based upon the comments. I tried to bump up your “recommended” count to make you more influential, but could not locate your comment.

It’s at 10 reactions now. :mellow: 
This comment is about 35 down the list. I have another, more political comment in there that’s at 16 responses. I didn’t use kitchen window in that one. It’s too ranty to be practical.
