Funny how there are different “cool” words, over time, that are used to describe things.
“Amazing!” How often have you heard that one? What isn’t “amazing” these days?
“Surreal” Ughh, that one nearly makes me vomit. I never did understand how that one *ever* caught on! Why not simply say “unreal” or “hard to believe” or incredible?
Or, when anything is: a “Pejorative” ? Oh come ONnnnn! Who are they trying to impress wiith their ultra-grammar vocabulary? Just say Insult or put-down and be done with it. Gawwd!
Some words don’t last. I remember one year back in High School, whenever something was super-cool, it was “Outrageous!” That was the cool word. For awhile, everything was “Outrageous”. But the next year, people didn’t say that. I forget what the very next “word” was.
“Cool” or “kewl”. That one, seems to be the one that *has* lasted over different generations. KEWWWL, dude! How Cool is that? (it was too good to pass up, hehe)
Some words, are just plain weird. Like: “Fleek”. Do I even wanna know what that is? Umm, not really. Why was this ever invented? Someone is trying to hard too be inventive.
Whatever happened to “Awesome!” ? And isn’t it kinda funny that “hottest” and “Coolest” can both be used to mean the same thing? And what will be the cool word in 2020? And will we get sick of hearing it? “Simpler is better.” Because it’s Cooler. (wink)
