Street wisdom

somewhere in boston.... 
awesome is a very american word, i think. its much used by the americans around me, but i never use it as i feel i cannot say it casually enough. my accent is wrong, too. here you can listen to the pronunciation, but it sounds a little off to me. the guy saying it defenitely forgot to be awesome..
(the shadow is of course the one and only awesome tim...!)

That's how you say 'awesome' ;)

Yeah, it's part of the vernacular that comes and goes. It sounds funny coming from anyone over say, 30 or 35 years old, too. But I suppose you can BE awesome with any accent or age. And then the culture identifies something else to be. Introduce a Dutch term with enough excitement and authority and you may well get the people around you adopting that, too.
