Now. The questions then become: How should one best celebrate such an auspicious occasion? How much awesome can you bring to the table before the table collapses? Am I really awesome enough to participate?
I can only provide a confident and solid answer to the third query. You are totally awesome enough. Totally.
As for question number two, I figure if the table collapses from an overabundance of awesome, well, it was probably time for a new table anyway. You didn't want a table that had a set capacity for awesome, did you? So don't worry about over-taxing the table with your awesomeness. Things will work out the way they need to.
Now the first question. Hmmmm. This one is tougher, I think. That you should celebrate in a manner that is awesome is obvious. But what is awesome? Websters defines "awesome" as:
1: expressive of aweWell, that wasn't as helpful as I'd hoped...
2 : inspiring awe
2 : inspiring awe
Let's see how they define "awe":
an emotion variously combining dread, veneration, and wonder that is inspired by authority or by the sacred or sublime
Hmmm - if I had been asked to define it without the assistance of Websters, I almost certainly would not have included the word "dread". I absolutely would not have listed it first.
Nope, Mr. Webster, in this case you were no help. I think we need to return to the current vernacular definition. Where does one find current vernacular definitions? Urban Dictionary, of course. The Urban Dictionary carries many definitions for awesome, my possible favorite being:
A 'sticking plaster' word used by Americans to cover the huge gaps in their vocabulary. It is one of the three words which make up most American sentences. The American vocabulary consists of just three words: Omigod, awesome, and shit.
Well, shit. That didn't make me feel awesome at all. But it did make me giggle. And starting
your morning with a giggle is, in my humble opinion, pretty awesome.
However you choose to define it, I hope you have an awesome day!
