|I would like to propose a new word: “foreverline” (a combination of the words “forever” and “online”). This describes the life expectancy of any photograph or text that you share online – something akin to the longevity of what you share. (You could also say, “it’s like a long time” or “it’s like forever and eva and eva.”)
My new word, to some, might have a few negative implications, but I must say that it has been positive for us. And since I’m such a good student, I’ll use my word now in a sentence to explain: Our work is foreverline.
And to keep getting those straight A’s, I’ll also share an example: We recently heard from a man who had purchased some metal frames (made by us) from a store in Connecticut that is now closed. His family had built a wall of photos around our frames, and they needed a few more so they could add more photos. After some intense internet searching, he found us. Although we’re no longer offering these for sale, they’re foreverline, and we’re happy to make them for him.
We also recently heard from a woman who asked if we could still make a “hay baler needle table.” She had seen it on Etsy a few years back, and was hoping we could make another one. Yes! Yes, we can. We’re happy to make some “retired” pieces on a by-request basis. And you guessed it, our table was foreverline in her “favorites.”
So, what do you think? Is my new word worthwhile or pointless? After all – correct me if I’m wrong – but I think in 1990, we simply called it remembering.
