I almost instinctively stabbed myself in the side of the head with a fork when I heard this yesterday. I was having lunch at a restaurant near UCR in Riverside surrounded by UCR students, and overheard two male students describing a chance encounter with some artist. I lifted my face out of my burger long enough to focus on the two undergrads flexing their English muscle to elaborately describe this chance meeting with apparent fame. I know this is a pretty lame rant, but I know I'm not the only person irritated by people eager to describe the epic idea they just had, or the awesome beer they just discovered, or the ridiculous fries they just tasted. Has the word "good" been stricken from our vocabulary? So if the words epic and awesome are worthy to describe how a burrito tastes, how will one of these intellectual giants find the words to describe the birth of their first child? Will it be any more significant than that burrito they had?
