Cloudy with a chance of AWESOME!
I think that “awesome” is often overused. In fact, it is entirely overused. We use it to describe pizza, socks, hot dogs, movies…pretty much anything that is probably not awesome.
There’s a sense, with this word, that if we actually were experiencing awesome, we would drop to our knees, lose the ability to breathe and change our perspective on everything we’ve experienced up to that moment. Hot dogs are not going to create that feeling. Socks do not create that feeling. Acts of God and nature…maybe.
p.s. Sorry for the giant scroll-down.
