Is the trend your friend?

There are certain time-honored terms and phrases that instantly reveal what someone does for a living. For example, lawyers talk about demurrers (and if they’re feeling particularly feisty, they throw in a few malfeasances and torts for good measure). Doctors talk about agonals, BMPs and CBCs.
