If I see or hear the word “Awesome” being misused again, I think I’ll scream! It has become another word hijacked into trivialisation by the prevailing one-inch-deep mentality. The Milky Way is awesome. The Aurora Borealis is awesome. An active volcano is awesome. The opening chorus of J.S. Bach’s B minor Mass is awesome. An ice cream is not awesome. #1 in the Top Ten is not awesome. The new line of Maybelline mascara is not awesome. Your new jeans are not awesome. Geddit?
