#JusJoJan —Seldom Used Word

A89A05B9-21EF-43EA-B4F3-A01CBFD54060When I read that Jill over at J-Dubs Grin and Bear It had selected the word “fantastic” for Linda G. Hill’s Just Jot It January prompt today, I realized that this was going to be harder than I thought.

You see, “fantastic” is not a word I use very often. In fact, I can’t recall the last time I described anything or anyone as “fantastic.”

I had a wonderful time. It’s a great movie. The book is really engrossing. The acting is excellent. The football game was exciting. It was a tremendous achievement. The fireworks were spectacular. The Grand Canyon is breathtaking. Mount Rainier is majestic. My wife is remarkable, our kids are amazing, our dog is terrific and our cat is…well, a cat.

I just don’t use the word fantastic. I know what it means. I know how to use it. I even recognize when it could be used. But for some reason that I can’t explain, it’s just not part of my everyday vocabulary.

So try as I may, my response to today’s #JusJoJan prompt will be anything but fantastic.

Sorry about that.

    Your post is Fantastic! how you came up with a bunch of synonyms. Maybe not using fantastic boils down to word choice. I on the other hand overuse fantastic … enough for both of us 😉 😂
