Adequate

Hmmm… Is this an adequate response to a word prompt?

These days ‘adequate’ seems to be one of those ‘meh’ words like ‘average’ that on the surface sounds perfectly ok but in everyday use gives an undercurrent impression of inadequacy? Since when did ‘good enough’ become not good enough? I mean, we can’t all be better than everyone else all the time – surely the law of averages requires that most people sit within a middle ground of averageness, with a few bounding ahead and a few stragglers lagging behind?

Or is that just my inherent feeling of inadequacy talking?
