Bowie Mike commented recently about explaining to kids that we actually used to have to roll down the windows. I was going to comment that I think it's interesting that I still call it "rolling down the windows" even when electrified and I wonder if young-uns are going to start calling it "closing the windows." (Do they ever even open them any more, with this fancy air conditioning that's going around? Oh, yeah, there's the drive-through...)
And, of course, our Civic still has window handles, as do half the cars I rent...
Do other people still say "dial a phone number?" We haven't really dialed in a while, and, for the most part, I use the address book feature to call people these days, but if I call a new number, I still think of it as "dialing." There must be a word for words that hang on after their descriptiveness has waned.
There must be other words that fit this category, or (like rolling up windows) are on their way. Put some in the comments section.
