It must be a generational issue, Mary. I say this word
often enough that it won't be obsolete in my sphere of
influence. It really is a terrific word to have in your
vocabulary.
BTW, I too went to Cath. Univ. and I studied at the Paulist
Seminary. Long story. But I finished my Masters and PhD at American.

    Thank you for the nifty review. I graduated with a degree in English from Catholic U and have learned to appreciate the rigors of the program. I got a Master's in Education from the Univ. of AL in Birmingham and ironically taught middle school for 22 years in a Catholic School in Birmingham. Talk about life being cyclical! I must tell you I read with interest all of the pieces you publish. You have wonderful human interest stories and the telling is as good as the tale.

Mary Kelly how nifty of you to chose this word to be saved. It is a good one and yet a lot of young people today may have no idea of what it means. Many blessings for a great day. Patricia

Lol! I like "nifty," too. I used to say it more often and my kids said it. I remember when my daughter used it, my mother didn't know the word and was impressed by her vocabulary. Yes, hooray for "nifty!"

Go, Catholic University of America!

I like your poem. The word "nifty" I'm not certain of. I think it has been gone for some time. The last time I heard it was on the TV show of the 70s, Happy Days, which was set in the 1950s! I wasn't born until the next decade, so I really have never heard it used. Your argument for saving it is valiant, though, and your word choices are wonderful. Your cadence is my favorite part. Left me tapping my toe...

Good job.

I think the word was popular in the twenties or thirties. New generations have introduced weird replaced as in "That's bad." Makes no sense!
Definition in stanza one, examples in stanza two, argument for its use in three.
A well-constructed nifty poem. Good luck in the contest.

Nifty is one of those seldom used words that does have a particular meaning and can by used to describe almost anything.

Should make an interesting entry into this contest.

I had forgotten how much I used to like using "nifty" to describe almost everything I liked, especially certain foods and of course all those 50s vintage cars. But your rhythm falters too much in the last stanza. Can you tweak those verses before the voting starts?

what a nifty post and nifty poem! I love Nifty - and say it often. Now will say it more often so it won't go the way of "double decker" (meaning bunk beds.) I was talking to a Texas friend (I'm originally from Georgia) and was telling her that a room had a double decker in it and she had no idea what I was talking about.
So... nifty it is. I hope you get lots of positive responses.
Nifty responses!
