Throughout time mankind has communicated using language. As we developed our language has evolved from symbols and pictures into words. Whether spoken or written, there seems to be some universal truths to how we use words to communicate.

Sometimes people try to use words that are not commonly used on an everyday basis. They do this in an effort to not only increase their vocabulary, but also often times impress others with their ability to learn something new.The latest of this trend is the word EPIC! Since we have exhausted the word AWESOME, it is now time to wear out yet another word that I hear used daily in inappropriate ways.

Let us all get back to basics by using our language the way it was intended. By using words like AWESOME for events like the sighting of Halley’s Comet or any other natural phenomenon!
