OK so this has been a post I’ve been milling around in my head for a while now. If you watch TV enough (especially reality TV) you will notice that people use and reuse and over use the same adjectives. High on that list of over used words is AMAZING. I am beginning to hate that word. Another is AWESOME. Is everything really AWESOME? No of course not.
Now before you all start calling me a hypocrite I will admit to using these words and many others. That is why from this day forward I am going to widen my vocabulary. Only things that are truly AMAZING and truly AWESOME will be given such adjectives. Seriously, my point of this is not to be a grammar Nazi but to point out that words in American culture start to lose their true meaning due to overuse. Love is one of the biggest victims. People LOVE their husband or wife but they also LOVE their car or their shirt or a cup of coffee. I know someone has posted on this before and if I could remember who it was I would give mad props. Nevertheless I urge you all to think about your words. There are so many that we can use and they’re all free and anything free is worth savin’ up for!
So post in the comments what word you think is over used lets fight this thing together! I’ll start off with a little list of my own.
