which word would I ban and why?




If I had to ban any word currently in vogue it would have to be ‘cool’, not least because it isn’t.

General taken to mean Ace! or Great! it creates the feeling of neither. Being cool is something I physically dislike, I hate shivering, and if it means seeking shade I prefer the sun and to be seen. But perhaps the worst thing about it is that when kids use it it makes them sound as if they are trying to be clever, and when grown ups use it it makes them sound as if they wish they were younger.

But let’s be honest. The real reason for banning it is that it’s the worst one word title for a blog or post I’ve ever used!
