Definitions lost

Tonight I was helping Grace with her homework.

She asked, "What does streak mean?"

My mind immediately went to the 70's when streak was a verb, rather than a noun.

I tried to explain how people would run naked at some events, which just brought an "ewww" from her.

Then I tried to explain that we used to put blond in our hair and we called it streaks, which now is called highlights, and I don't know when that changed!

None of those were the correct answer but did cause me to feel really old!
