AWESOME

"Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite."
C. S. Lewis

I came across this quote this morning. It got me to thinking how often I do that. I will say something is "awesome." You don't get much better than awesome. In fact, truth be known -- only God is awesome. So when I say a meal or a movie or a golf shot was awesome, what word is left beyond that to describe something that truly is awesome?
