Reboot - verb - to boot or to be booted again.
English is an interesting language. It recycles old words to be used again in an entirely different way.
Reboot would be one of those woods. Spam, app, mouse, click - well, I could go on.
Yesterday my post considered an improper roof repair regarding plumbing vent collars, sometimes called boots.
That house had new shingles but the "roofer" did not want to replace the boots.
On this house we have exactly the opposite!
This "roofer" did not want to replace the shingles, but found the boots to be leaking.
But replacing the entire collar, and boot, would have caused extra roof work as these older shingles would likely break during the collar replacement.
What to do? Simply reboot! Typically referring to computers, and restarting them, English can devise additional ways to use older, and even newer, words!
This Flipper has done just that!
What we have here is a new boot, on top of an old boot, with gobs of goop to boot!
See how I did that, mixing the old and new form of a word in the same sentence?
I bet that ain't leakin' now! Double your pleasure, double your fun! Gee, maybe that's really silicone covered with bootblack? Wow, I did it again! I should go to word boot camp!
My recommendation: have a good look at the house you want to buy! Hire a home inspector! He will have tools and cool stuff to help you understand as much as possible about that house! He might even have a nifty telephoto lens on the camera! And while sellers and Flippers sometimes consider the home inspector to be a jack-booted thug, they aren't. You might even find a very polite home inspector who will not want to dirty the new carpet and show you his booty.
Hey, not that booty! This booty! Do you like the stylish yellow?
