Fantastic is one of those words that though is ment to convey one meaning ( positive, magical, special) now has been tamed down in modern language. Nowadays it can be used in a sarcastic negative way or in a positive way!

Fantastic said Mable to herself as say her train disappearing into the distance. Fantastic she thought as it began to rain!

Mable was cold, wet and now she was late.

Fantastic, thought Greg , she has missed the train too. Fantastic here comes the rain.

“Hello, Mabel, isn’t it” Greg said as he sidled up to a wet and cold Mabel. “Would you like to share my umbrella” he smiled his most winning smile at her.

Mabel smiled “That would that would be lovely” Greg’s heart fluttered she has the most fantastic smile.

Mable was surprised to find herself under the same umbrella as Greg the guy who works upstairs for her at the same firm she works for. They often exchanged smiles but had never spoken before.

“It’s three quarters of an hour until our next train shall we have a coffee?” Asked Greg. Mabel smiled, “That would be fantastic thanks”

That was the start of their relationship and just shows how a sarcastic, negative “Fantastic” can, by circumstances, become a happy positive “Fantastic!”.

By the way when there train arrived not many people noticed it was being driven by a Purple unicorn. Now that is truly Fantastic!

    Purple is my favorite color. A purple unicorn is even better! It has been suggested to me that I overuse fantastic and come across sarcastic sometimes because of it. I still say fantastic a lot. Not sure why but if asked how I am doing (good or bad) fantastic is the first word that comes to mind.
