I was staying at a sassy little hotel chain called Tru. It’s a Hilton spinoff. It’s got a pool table and board games in the lobby! It’s got hand-written messages about local activities on whiteboards facing the elevators! The walls are painted mint and teal and other fizzy colors, and the floors are made of something that looks like recycled plastic wood, if that’s a thing.

The attendant at the desk was wearing a bright round Tru nametag that said “Hey there!” and her name. She also wore a Tru fleece vest, on the back of which was the message: “Disrupt with a smile.”

Let us pause to honor, with pleasure, the passing of the meaning of all forms of the word “disrupt.”
