|SOMEONE BETTER BE THINKING|
UP NEW WORDS!
Definition of awesome:
- Inspiring awe: an awesome sight
- Showing or characterized by awe
Definition of awe:
- An overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc. produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful, or the like: in awe of God.
So I have to ask, how did awesome suddenly become a word meaning good, very good, not bad, ok, suit yourself, whatever......
"I'm going to the bathroom now"
"How's the coffee here?"
"My headache is gone"
"How was your day?"
How did it happen? How did a very capable word get distorted like this? It already had a truly important meaning in our vernacular.
What if, in front on an autumn sunset, aliens land, bringing peace and harmony to the world?
Awesome. Same as a cup of coffee.
All I'm saying is we need a replacement word. Who's in charge?
