Idiom marches on

A little while ago, Susan asked me to do something. I went off and did it. I then came back and said, “Mission accomplished.” At which point I realized that there has been a paradigm shift and that the phrase “Mission accomplished” now means “I didn’t do shit” (i.e, nothing accomplished) or, perhaps, “the situation is now an even bigger mess than it was before.”

It’s getting positively Orwellian out there….
