Is it me or are you sick to death of all those words and phrases that we hear over and over and over again on a daily and hourly bases?
My favorite word to never use again, has to be AMAZING.
It really hit home during last year’s Academy Awards. Seemed every actor or celebrity interviewed got excited and used the word AMAZING 100 times. "Working with Jeff Bridges – he’s amazing. The movie he did was amazing. His talent is amazing. Everyone is amazing."
So how do you feel about this great event?
"Wow, it’s simply amazing!"
When you ask your friend how the girl he took out was? Of course she was AMAZING! Seems everyone is amazing. Everything is amazing. Man, makes a person yearn for words like "hot," "cool" or even "far out."
OK, maybe not far out but you get the point…
How about the description, EXPOSED?
The Baltimore Ravens ‘exposed’ the Kansas City Chiefs for who they really are. This is the current overused word in sports.
The fighter got knocked out in round one? Naw, he got EXPOSED.
It’s the new word for FAILURE. It’s now used a million times on radio and TV.
Just say, "Hey after that beating it’s obvious that team really stinks."
One more word/phrase we sure could live without: CORRECTION.
Holy molly? CNN is in love with that one. The stock market is going through a CORRECTION this week. Translation: YOU LOST ALL YOUR MONEY. Too bad.
I’m sure there are tons more. What are your favorites? Brother….oh, that’s one too.
