Special Announcement

It's official. "Exemplary" is the new "awesome."

Seriously, "awesome" is getting a bit long in the tooth, isn't it?

"Exemplary." You know it makes sense.


Josh Reynolds said...

You'll only take 'awesome' from me when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

I mean, come on, there's a whole extra syllable in 'exemplary'! Who has time for that?

David Moore said...

Two extra syllables. You're right. Hmm...

How about "Outstanding"? That's only one extra syllable, and you can really shout that one.


Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

I enjoy the shock factor of "cool" or "wicked" flanked by "exemplary" or a similarly high brow adjective.

Josh Reynolds said...

What about 'rad'? It's a bit old school, but I have a soft spot for it.

Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

As long as you can handle the raised eyebrows sure to be thrown your way, Rad is the way to go.

David Moore said...

High brow/Eyebrow. There's gotta be a poem in that.

Sweet Vernal Zephyr said...

Darn it, David! I do believe that sounds like a challenge. Thank you all, my muse.

Syllables compete
As "Exemplary" said in heat

Is nothing to compare
When "Outstanding" rends the air.

Yet it flows off of the tongue
Sans the post-climatic hum

Of the old familiar cry.

What a "Wicked" phrase to try!

And as I raise my brows in jest
I must hold tight to my chest

Neither "Wicked", "Rad" nor "Sweet"
But my most familiar treat

To the chagrin of all my friends
I must say "Awesome" again!

Well done, old girl. Well done.
