T-196 : Better Buzz

"Buzz" used to mean that either you'd failed in the game of Operation, that someone had shaken your hand with the cylindrical metallic shocker, or that your mom had cut your hair to the scalp with the home clipper set.

These days it means that you've set your SmartPhone to "vibrate", you're playing a game show on the PlayStation, or you're referring to Woody's buddy in Toy Story.

Any way you slice it, it seems that buzz used to be more shocking but has now been toned down to be anticipatory or even pleasurable.

If you'd like to comment, just buzz me. ;)
