#JusJoJan 2018, the 29th – Fantastic


“Fantastic” is one of my go-to words when I’m describing something that I think is great. I think there should be more synonyms for fantastic, though.

I’m not worried about not having enough ways to talk about how miserable I am, when I am. And there are SO many ways to describe something that’s bad. I can get downright creative, in fact, when something angers me. So why are there so few ways to say how wonderful something is? After all, we NEED words to show our enthusiasm! I don’t understand why it’s not easier to say how delighted I am with something than how stinky I find something to be.

Have you ever been bothered by this? I am, constantly.

This slightly annoyed-sounding post is in direct opposition to how happy I am that the prompt is brought to you by Just Jot it January, and in particular, by the word “fantastic,” provided by Jill! Thank you so much, Jill! You can find her JusJoJan post by clicking right here. Please go and say hi!

  2. I wonder if I use amazing and awesome too much. Maybe I’ll throw fantastic in the mix.


  3. Not only are there not enough words, sometimes my fantastics are mistaken for sarcasm. I only say fantastic if I mean it.


  4. The thing is Linda, there are just not enough words, ever….or it could be I just don’t know them….


  5. I wish life was fantastic it’s not it’s shit!
