Def: to channel-hop
I liked this word immediately; it somehow conjures the fun of channel surfing… Zap! Zap! Zap!
But what makes it even better is that it’s so much more innocent than I ever thought.
I live around the corner from rue Saint-Denis: sex store central. In all the grimy store windows, they happily announce “Zapping 2 euros”. Zapping?! Qu’est-ce c’est? All I know is that it sounds pretty kinky and I imagined it was, kinky, and left it at that. Now I realize it’s just harmless channel-surfing my friends! Two euros for a whole world of channels to explore!
