How to Give a True Compliment:
Oh, you thought I would have the answer to that? This week at Brain, Child Magazine I’m discussing our culture’s hyperbolic way of talking and writing about every detail of life. The most ordinary meal is “amazing.” Each picture a child brings home is “gorgeous.” I’m as guilty of this overuse of over-the-top adjectives as anyone, but I’m trying to get back down to Earth.
Come and chat with me about it at Brain, Child. (If I were not trying to tone it down a bit these days, I would have added a !!! to the end of that sentence.)
