"A thing — affairs are no longer referred to as affairs. They are in the Seventies called 'things'..."

"... as 'I have a thing going' or 'I’m having this thing.'"

From "Rule 1: Use The Lingo" — from Harper's Bazaar relationship tips from 1976... a "relationship" being "one step up from a thing."

Billy Paul has an annoying oral fixation in that video.

To be blunt...I wonder what it is?

What good is a love affair
When you can't see eye to eye?

Man perms were a thing in the 70s, too.

I once knew a man in the Spring
Who decided he wanted a fling
He had an affair
And looked debonair
Until he purchased a Volkswagon Thing.
