  • It's just occurred to me that in the UK bevvied (from the noun bevvy, drink, abbreviation of beverage) means drunk. But I've only heard that in the adjectival form, the verb being get bevvied. O'Neal's pal's flight attendant breaks new (and exciting) ground by verbing the noun directly.

  • "A colleague recently made a startling announcement.
    He reported that on a short-hop flight, an attendant had apologized to her parched passengers because time had not allowed them to be beveraged, but not to worry, for they would be beveraged on their connecting flights.
    Bemused, he announced, 'I got verbed.'�?
