I just thought you’d like to know, I’ve added a word to the dictionary.

The word is asky.

It started when my librarian friend told me about this wierdo stalker she’s got. She described his over-inquisitiveness as being asky, and that, yes, asky was a word. Unfortunately, no dictionary on Earth seemed to agree, so I set out to make true her statement by adding this word to a dictionary, thereby briniging it formally into existence.

Thank you, Urban Dictionary for making my dreams come true. Louise and I are now the proud parents of a new four-letter word, asky.

Now, asky has a formal definition in an informal dictionary. Perhaps one day this word will find its way into the vernacular, and even into bona-fide dictionaries. Dictionaries in libraries across the planet. And one day, years from now, a young child will see, hidden between sophomoric graffiti tags and crude depictions of genitalia, the word that might just change his life: asky. He will see that word, and think to himself, “I want to be asky”. That child might come to ask too many questions, and they just might be the right questions. That child just might change the world. That child is our future.
