How to deflate a valued word.

Am I the only one or have you noticed over the recent past, the casual and careless tossing around of a primary word of distinction? “Awesome!”

The word indicates something striking in presence or effect. It virtually takes your breath away, stops you in your tracks. It’s something substantial. And even these descriptors do not do it justice. The word is reserved for the very few encounters. And yet, it has become a catch-phrase. You’ve likely heard the abuse.


“Okay, I’ll pick you up at 5 tonight.”



“I have two Pepsi’s in the cooler.”

“That’s awesome.”

Really, are these mundane events deserving of being awesome?

And then you have that gut-wrenching phrase: “It’s awesome, dude.”


A word reserved for the most spectacular significance relegated to the ordinary, the unremarkable, the routine. Another loss of sensibility.
