'Nice' was once a BAD word. A few hundred years ago, It meant 'stupid'.

Then it segued through some related meanings like 'picky', 'fastidious' etc

Until it began to mean 'GOOD'

Now it's been so overused that it's beginning to be used ironically, with a meaning like revoltingly sweet or cutesy, i.e. BAD...

plus ca change...

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
