In a related vein, words or terms from the past that you now have to use carefully due to a different meaning in the culture than was originally intended:

From the Christmas Carol "Deck the Halls"...."Don we now our gay apparel!"

"Booty"--used to be something you found on a baby's foot, or a pirate's treasure, but now it refers to a different part of the anatomy!!

There was also a product that was advertised as an appetite suppressant which was called "Ayds"--don't know if it exists anymore, but if it were being marketed now, I don't think that would be the name they would choose.

I am sure there are more, but I can't think of anymore right now.

I think now days people will say the name of the store or say "the mall".

This is making me miss my grandma. . .awwww. . .

She also called the couch a "davenport" and called her shirt a "waist."

Yep, that's right. . .a "waist". Which, thanks to too much time on the davenport, she did not possess. (a waist, that is)
