Keeping You, Um, Posted

One doesn't know if it's simply the company one keeps, but the word "post" suddenly seems to be the word du jour.

This, mind you, isn't in the sense of a blog or newsgroup entry, or even that thing you do in front of a letterbox. Instead, it's a word that seems to have replaced the perfectly servicable "after".

"I'll see you post lunch.". I'll e-mail you post the meeting." "Why don't we chat post the conference?" Such are some of the statements being uttered in public and without remorse.

Please stop it. Post-haste.
