Not everything can be awesome, right? An "awesome" dinner can actually be "tasty"; an "awesome" movie could be "riveting"; and an "awesome" first date might have actually been "magical." With so many other words to use instead, The Write Life Magazine has some alternative words for awesome .
This word is so much fun to say, and can be used to describe just about anything.
