That's Awesome!

The words “amazing” and “awesome” have gotten hijacked by the world in recent years. It seems like every television commercial uses the word “amazing” to describe their product, their event, or their service. Most every conversation I have with someone under the age of 40, the word “awesome” or “amazing” are used multiple times. These words are so over-used that they don’t really describe what is truly amazing and awesome.
