Browsing about the web today and ran across a calendar that had a scheduled class labeled “disorientation”. Turns out it was a seminar for graduating seniors as they leave school to prepare them for the “real” world. I had to laugh out loud. While it was cute and caught my eye, did anyone bother to think what the implication of the title is/was/will be — ESPECIALLY considering the intended audience? Perhaps there’s an inside meaning that I’m not aware of, and if so, great. But in the case of inside meanings or jokes, you shouldn’t let the term leak outside, where schmucks like me can take it and disinterpret it, or worse yet, de-blog on it.
Choose your words carefully for their meaning.
