Challenge #13 - Accepting Change

Holy Shmuck!  All my life I've worked hard to become a wordsmith, but am now finding myself inundated with new words with new meanings. 

The latest such word is "racino."  Maybe I'm living in a tuna can, but until last evening I had never seen that word written or heard it spoken.  Naturally, I headed directly to my local dictionary, which tells me that a racino is a combination of a racetrack and a casino.

The Internet is literally smothering us with new terminology, most of which is complete Swahili to the baby boomer.  I can't help but wonder how my daddy would respond to my asking him if I could use my mouse to get on Zoosk to find me a boyfriend!
