I look at this word and no inspiration comes. I have three what I would consider valid reasons not to like this word. I have read other blogs for this same prompt and some are really nice and well written. As for myself, nuthin….. First of all I have realized while thinking of the particular word, that I don’t like it, it bugs me. Second of all I have realized that I have definitely overused this particular word in my earlier years(that’s probably why I don’t like it). Third of all the darn spelling. I still struggle with our english language and the reasoning behind some of the spelling. It is ridiculous. So as of now I may be feeling the epitome of irritation over this word. I guess I have been prompted and inspired to express my distaste. Although it would and will come in handy in story writing, like for example, ‘She is the epitome of a girly girl.’ or, ‘He is the epitome of trailer trash.’ etc., etc. Okay now I can see the possible uses for this word. Still do not like it though, thank god for thesauruses.
