Amazing????
Posted 4/6/2011 4:11:00 PM
Is it just me or have you noticed that  the "it" word lately is "amazing?" It seems like everything is "amazing!!!" Why does this happen? People seem to latch onto a word and absolutely use and abuse it until it is so crusty worn, torn, toasty and dead! Whenever I watch reality television such as The Bachelor or any of The Houswives shows or an actor on a talk show, everything is amazing!!! The view was amazing. He or she is amazing. This wine is amazing. The cast was amazing. The movie is amazing! What happened to the rest of our vocabulary? What's wrong with.....terrific, stupendous, wonderful, unbelievable, dynamite, great, incredible, astonishing, stunning, even stupifying? I don't get it. Well actually I do. People like to be "in."
Do the "in" things, say the "hip" things, wear the "in" clothes etc. Yeah I get it. Doesn't mean I like it. As a matter of fact I kind of not like it at all.
Don't always go with the crowd. Dare to be different. Don't be afraid. I'm not.

    Dan, what a very good blog. I always admired someone who didn't need to follow the crowd. I was always considered different. I never knew if it was a good thing or bad thing.
