12 extremely irritating words and phrases

We slip into cliche because we're basically lazy, I guess. And maybe we think we sound "with it," "with it" being itself a cliche. Whatever the source of our impulse, it's not hard to come up with lists of these things, evidence of the epidemic. Blogger Sharon Greenthal offers this one:
1. It is what it is
2. Man cave
3. Amazing
4. Baby bump
5. Awesome
6. Whatever
7. Literally
8. Think outside the box
9. It’s all good
10. Process
11. Just a thought
12. Virtual
Well, it is what it is. It's all good. Just a thought: if we could literally process our choice of words outside the box, that would be awesome. Whatever.
