I have a list of words that gross me right out. And here are a few:
Please do not ever use the word “moist” around me. Especially with “towelette.” No need for further discussion. Oh, this reminds me… “wet nap” is right up there in the disgusting category.
If you use the word “coupon” PLEASE pronounce it “Que-pon” in my company and not “Coo-pon.” <GAG! just spelling it made me nauseous.>
I have a major problemo when someone says a wound or otherwise medical condition is “weeping.” (Again….mentally throwing up while typing….)
Scab. <ralphing right now!>
Here is a phrase that I see on t-shirts or the likes…that makes me want to gouge my eyeballs out with hot pokers. “HOT MESS” NO! Please never again. If you use this phrase, we may have to end our friendship.
And here are a few trendy phrases that unless you use them a minimal of 67 times a day, evidently you will be cast out of society and deemed “un-cool” :
“At the end of the day………”
“I know…. right?”
PLEASE, PLEASE… especially as an adult…. stay far from the reaches of the term… “Chillaxin.” Especially on your Facebook status. I have most likely already de-friended you.
My kids think the word “meal” is gross. I think I “get” it. And Big Injun Man detests the word “snack.”
“Chunk” Chunky salsa….. you may be good, but you do NOT abide in my fridge.
OK, enough negativity for the day. How about a few really cool, fun words??
My favorite is “goat.” I mean…who came up with that? A “goat!!” How clever! Instantaneously I smile when I hear the word and get a wonderful mental image of a precious little face with a tiny beard.
I like the word “mitten.” Again, it makes me think of something cute..and innocent.
I took this picture a couple of days ago…my neighbors just got two donkeys.
Even though I have never used it… I like the word “Dip-thong.” I think it is a part of speech?? Or a …. oh…never mind.
“Smorgasbord.” ← very cool!!
My sister keeps texting me about once a week and uses the term… “post-haste.” I must admit…it’s pretty invigorating if I do say so myself.
Tell me some of your favorite words… or words that gross you out!
