Word of the Week Wednesday: hideous


This Wednesday’s Word of the Week is: hideous.

Hideous is not an uncommon word.  It means ugly or repellant.

I’ve always liked this word.  It lends itself easily to hyperbolic use.

It’s a stronger word than ugly but perhaps because of its use in exaggeration, it’s easier to not take serious.
