B&N Week 177: Peers--Who Are Yours?


It’s another bright and shiny Tuesday! I’m loving it!

That’s all the introduction for today. Let’s just jump into this week’s B&N question, shall we?

Peers—who are yours?

Interesting question, don’t you think? Perhaps some definitions are in order, just so that we’re all on the same page.

Merriam-Webster defines the word as one that is of equal standing with another. Pretty simple, right? [It’s a simple definition, without going too deep and without giving examples.]

Methinks one more definition is in order, and that is contemporary [from which, we get contemporaries]. Again, we go back to Merriam-Webster, which defines it as happening, existing, living, or coming into being during the same period.

So, we have peers, and we have contemporaries. But, let’s break it down a bit more, just to round it out fully. Are your parents your peers? No, they are not. Your brothers and sisters, cousins, or whatever, are more likely to be your peers than your parents. Just as long as you’re on equal footing with someone, you’re peers.

This is a roundabout way of saying that there are peer groups. Just because you’re not the peer of one doesn’t mean you’re not the peer of someone else.
