This Week's Word

This Week's Word

This week's word is "hellacious."

It used to be an occasional vistor to my personal lexicon, but it's fallen into disuse...generally in favor of such eloquent turns of phrase as "real bad" or "real, real bad."

But Jon Miller described a Sidney Ponson pitch to Derrek Lee tonight as "hellacious."

It's a fine word. I'm going to start using it again.

Your job is to find a way to work it into your everyday speech this week. Be creative, and think outside the box (but do it the bullshit retail style, so that you're not really thinking outside the box, but rather rehashing and dressing the same old shit up in a shiny package, making sure that it doesn't deviate from the same old tired way it's always been done).

Bonus points is you're able to use hellacious to describe a person.

Personally, I'd like to be described as "the hellacious Tommy Acuff," but I figure that's a nickname you'd have to earn. And I just don't have that kind of free time.
