"Amazing"


Monday, February 04, 2013

Have I mentioned that I don't like being forced to write blogs, just because they are included in a challenge? So, today, my blog is on the work "amazing."

I AM SICK TO DEATH OF THIS WORD.

Every single TV show I watch.... the only superlative adjective anyone ever uses these days is "amazing." The Biggest Loser, Glee -- it doesn't matter what show I watch ... my DP jokingly says back in college, we could've played a drinking game, doing shots every time someone used the work "amazing" - except that we would be plastered in the first five minutes.

So, the next time you want to use the word "amazing" -- think about substituting one of the following:

awesome,
fascinating,
incredible,
marvelous,
prodigious,
shocking,
stunning,
surprising,
unbelievable,
wonderful,
breathtaking,
extraordinary,
impressive,
miraculous,
spectacular,
staggering,
startling,
striking,
stupefying,
stupendous,
wondrous
awe-inspiring,
exciting,
hair-raising,
heart-stirring,
heart-stopping,
magnificent,
moving,
overwhelming,
spine-tingling,
thrilling

    Personally, I haaaaaaaate "awesome"

People use that word with a complete lack of discrimination.

    I am trying to think if i use the word that i can't say around you emoticon I don't think i do...but i use emoticon a lot...since that is one of Isaiah's favorite word to describe everything from 'no-homework' to a great wrestling move he just watched on his favorite WWE show emoticon
But i agree with you...i hear 'that' word a lot!

    Yes, let's definitely add "fabulous" to the list .... any other good substitutes?

How about "great"? kinda boring, but at least it's not "amazing"

    Well I will be the first one to help you out and not say the "a" word. Your blog today is fabulous! That is one of my favorite words that I use alot. I don't say have a good day or answer "good" when asked how I am doing today. It is always FABULOUS!
Hope you have a fabulous day!
