I hear that word alot. I say it under my breath(how can I not?)for everything that needs an adjective. Watching it grow as the go to, be all (I’m old) descriptor for more then the last couple generations. I have fought it tooth and nail. As my children grew I told them it was what people said who had no vocabulary. It failed to work on them, or anyone it seems. Along the way it’s meaning has garnered strength. The best, and/or the worst humanity has to offer in one easy sylable. Possibly the first to rival the word God.
Why do I bring this up after reading another powerfully descriptive story about self from you? Not sure. Maybe mostly just curious as to how it will sound fifty years from now. I won’t be here, so if you could please tell my kids.
