How could they know a palace there had been 
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen 

Maybe they were Hermits because they didn't need women hanging around.

make loveThe original meaning was "to woo or court" but changed into a genteel expression for sexual intercourse. This makes for some unintentional humor when hearing old movie dialogue. Simlarly, the 1960 movie with Marilyn Monroe and Yves Montand, Let's Make Love, was not a bedroom farce.

I'm tired of hearing "prodigal" being used to mean "wandering, given to running away or leaving and returning."  The parable in the book of Luke tells of a son who squanders his father's money.  Prodigal means "recklessly wasteful or extravagant."  And if you say popular usage has changed that, I say, fuck popular usage!

How about the word "gay" ?? It used to mean "happy". Now it is used to describe someone who is homosexual.
 

Being a "gay slut" used to mean that you had bad personal hygiene, but were a lot of fun to be around nevertheless. Ah, the 17th century!
