Would A Girl By Any Other Name Still Smell As Sweet?

I missed the vote that decided it was all right to call grown women 'girls.' After having that beat out of us during the 70's, it seems to have crept back into the vernacular. The last time I took the Rooty-dog to be groomed, the woman who waited on us said 'The girl who usually does him is not in today.' The girl of whom she spoke is about 35! A couple weeks ago, as I was leaving an office in St. Louis, one of the people hollered out to me: 'Be sure and have the girl stamp your parking ticket on the way out!' Trust me, in 1978, he would have been stomped to death.
