I think I use 'ultimate' a lot. I was answering a text message today and it began 'ultimately I think that...'
And it occurred to me that I start a lot of sentences that way. I wonder if frequent use of a word in your daily lexicon signals something about you as a person, and if it does, what does saying 'ultimate' all the time say about me?
I mean. I don't think you'd need an advanced degree to make the leap that maaaybe it says something about a tendency towards extremes...y'know, all or nothing.
Ultimately it's not something I'll lose sleep over but these thoughts, they just turn up on the subway sometimes.
