Day 3561: Overused words

Last night, I overused words to ask this question on Twitter:

One of the first answers to that question was “love and hugs” and several of us used words to express our feelings that those words could never be overused.

Do you see any overused (or underused) words in today’s blog post?


Compliments may include overused words but I still recommend them.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I look for “overused words.”

I also find this

… and this:

I love that I introduced that video by Ann Chirisu with the first overused word on her list (“this”).

Can “thank you” ever be overused?

  1. Back when I was writing for the big daily, somebody commented that I overused the word fine, Ann. It certainly made me think when I was describing events, actions, places, people, things … Have a wonderful time this holiday weekend!

    I think people are mean because they’re stupid.

  3. Of all the words out there, I don’t think someone can overuse thank you. Thank you for the photo of my husband’s favorite: ube ice cream. And thank you for letting me know it’s national eat your beans day. Think I’ll pass on that one. Thank you for the memes and the picture of the violins. I need to get mine out and play it again. One word I probably use too much in my blogs is perspective. And finally, another word that would be hard to overuse is love. Have a lovely holiday weekend.

  4. I don’t think Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary gets used enough, and I was surprised he doesn’t have a definition for “apathy”, but he does define “birth” as “The first and direst of all disasters.”

  5. I have never hear of Nov Sheff but he was adorable, so I am going to look up his book. Thanks!

  6. I have never been one for swearing until comparatively recently when I can’t speak to a real person about a problem. Not long ago my sister told me “I have never heard you use that word until now – twice – in that same phone call”. Insert your favourite

  7. I have to say that I hope it is people being dumb and not purposely mean, but somehow I’m not sure about that. p.s. I am so sad I missed fried clam day, but will make up for it
