Words We Should Change the Definition of: Adorable

Okay, this is what happens when you have too much to do and you do none of it - you think of words to change the definitions of. But whatever. 
So, "adorable". 
What does that mean?
When people say adorable, they usually mean "cute", "sweet", stuff like that.
But to "adore" means to: "regard with the utmost esteem, love, and respect; honor" (Dictionary.com). 
Hmm. Interesting.
To "be adorable" isn't as cutesy as we've made it. 
To "be adorable" is really something everyone should be, not just babies, puppies, and kittens.
Which is unfortunate, because I use adorable a lot. 
But sometimes I do use it in the right context. 
I wonder if people know that . . .
