It's everywhere you look. People are "shocked". From shootings to wardrobe malfunctions, everything now is labeled "shocking".

Getting numb here. It's going to take more now to actually feel "shocked".

Iv'e actually been shocked. From an extension cord draped carelessly in a pool of water. The sensation was electrifying. But not really shocking. Not as bad as the latest Alec Baldwin story.

Here are a few I hear and really dislike:

"Awesome" - Big deal you got a new care. Awesome should be reserved for something like a sunrise, or the birth of a baby.
"Absolutely" - Really? It's an absolute that you are going to the bar tonight? Absolute should be reserved for things such as death......and taxes.

This one time, I put a slice of leftover pizza out in the backyard for birds to get.

Anyway, a rogue squirrel came along and grabbed it by the crust. Then he took it like 50 feet up in the tree. Well more like 15. It was shocking.

My point? It was absolutely awesome.

Topix..behave yourself.

I didn't mean to sound redundant.
