Thesaurus Talk: RUSH

Yep, it's Thesaurus Talk Time. But before I list the overused word, I want to caution against replacing basic words with fancy-barely-can-pronouce words. When you replace the overused word, the sentence should flow equally as well or better. If not, you may want to rework the sentence.
