I was told the other day--by a professional, in case you were wondering--that I have a centrifugal family --as in centrifuge.
Think about it a bit. It does make sense.
It's like that game we used to play --we'd link hands and spin in circles--letting go suddenly to make each other fly off in different directions. My two sisters and I landed in Hawaii and then Japan (me, for years), Australia (Chris), and Alaska (Becky). Our brother is dead.
A definition: Latin for "center fleeing" ... the word is often used to describe why mud gets spun off a spinning tire, or water gets pushed out of the clothes during the spin cycle.
