Main Entry:
sur·re·al
Pronunciation:
\sə-ˈrē(-ə)l also -ˈrā-əl\
Function:
adjective
Etymology:
back-formation from surrealism
Date:
1937
1: marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream;
Does every new experience to Boobius Americanus have to be "surreal"? Can't something be remarkable, fascinating, fantastic, mesmerizing, astonishing, breath-taking, or anything else, or do we just qualify everything we don't encounter every day as being of a quasi-real, dreamlike occurence? Or, is everybody so fried on drugs that most events of one's day are hazy?

Yeah, I'm addressing you, America.

Sorry...I am astonishingly fried right now. It's surreal.
