Important Lexicon Update

without comments

I’m retiring “awesome” from my lexicon. It’s been a good long run, some fun times — a couple of actual I’ve really been gobsmacked by that whatever it is authentic usages (mountain, cool jet airplanes overhead, big steel boat right up close)   — but it’s time for something newer and fresher.

So, sayonara “awesome” and greetings to a few probationary replacements: “superb” “splendid” “majestic” “glorious” and “magnificent”.

Watch for the hopefuls in regular usage in the coming weeks, and expect a final decision on a permanent replacement by month’s end.
