Deliberate. I like the word. We all need to be more deliberate in our day-to-day lives. How does that sound? Since you're asking me, it's fine. Go ahead, copy, paste, and submit. Do it. It has a nice ring to it. If someone is mean, they say it was a deliberate act. If someone is nice, they marvel that someone could be nice. Nice is a two-bit word with no cache. I can take it or leave it. It's one of those superlatives we need now and then. It has its place in the lexicon. I'll take deliberate any day.
