Sorry, I Google

Standard

“We want to make sure the thing you’re looking for is on Google 100 percent of the time.” Eric Schmidt

I’ve spent a lot of time googling, even though when I started, it wasn’t a verb. 

And now, after all this time, the word continues to be a controversial one.

I’m typically a conformist when I think I might be judged, but not this time.

In my defense, I tried. 

“I went to Google to look it up” sounds okay, but I’m not sure about ending a sentence with a preposition.

“I pulled it up on Google” sounds more like I’m pulling up sagging britches than looking up information on a search engine.

“I searched Google for the topic” is just right, like the third bowl of Goldilocks’ porridge. Only thing is, I’ll never remember to speak formally about Google.

I’d rather google and be done with it.

What do you call your online searches?

WRite wHere I’m supposed to be – I’m feeling like a laptop rebel these days. Thanks, Google, hear me roar.
