The word “awe” means: “an emotion variously combining dread, veneration, and wonder that is inspired by authority or by the sacred or sublime,” according to Merriam Webster. Another definition by Wikipedia is, “Awe is an emotion comparable to wonder but less joyous. On Robert Plutchik's wheel of emotions awe is modeled as a combination of surprise and fear.”
Finding a sandwich “awesome” is so ridiculous. Does this sandwich strike you with dread (fear), veneration (a sign of deep respect), or wonder (astonishment)? Does it make you afraid to eat it? Actually, in the “olden days” this word was used more to describe sacred or sublime experiences, usually of a religious nature. These experiences were overwhelming when they happened.
If today’s populace thinks that their everyday foods, experiences, and deeds are “awesome,” I feel so sorry for them. Their “sublime” world is basically mediocre, and that is very sad.
