The Infuriating Hyperbole of the Word “Awesome”

11 Jul

Before using the term, ask yourself: Is it really ‘awesome?’ Really? Awesome like a burning sunset melting over an angry sea, each wave crashing upon the other, on and on until they are swallowed by night, lost to even the keenest eyes; now known only by ear like those virgin ears exalting in Mozart’s ecstasies or Beethoven’s triumphs bursting forth from the silence for the first time like stars igniting in cold, lonely blackness, exploding into swirling shrouds of distant nebulae ever-glowing in that endless void rolling on and on into an infinity so far beyond the paltry reaches human imagination that all we can fathom is the darkness apparent, the blackness tumbling upon the face of the waters realizing itself into existence? Is it awesome like that?

Or is it an app?
