(not 'awesome' rubber boots, but pretty nice ones) Shall we discuss amongst ourselves when and how everything under the sun has become....'AWESOME'? I am getting so tired of hearing this word used to describe the most un-awesome of things, events, emotions, people, etc.. Let's get real, very few things in life are awesome. Very few times am I struck dumb and left with jaws agape at say a pair of flip-flops ( "hey, those are awesome flip-flops") or someone's new haircut ("awesome new do, dude") or a good wine ("awesome rot-gut"). Isn't it time to retire 'awesome' to the junkyard of other 'awesome', trendy words? Lest we forget 'boss', 'neat' and 'groovy'... may they rest in peace.
