A couple of friends and I have this shared mental list (yeah, I’m not sure how we do it either) of WORDS WE HATE. Words that makes us cringe. Words that should be avoided if at all possible.
I thought it was time to commit this list to paper so I will start us out and then you can chime in with words you feel should be added and why they make your skin crawl. (Oh yeah, let’s keep all the naughty words out of this. Let’s all just assume that we all know better than to use those. To say it a little more strongly: I will edit out any words that I feel are inappropriate.)
Moist – Let’s stick with DAMP people.
Lover – Really? Lover? Ugh. The worst is when someone refers to their spouse as lover. I don’t need to hear that. Ear muffs.
Bro – I just think Bro is lame. And this is my list, on my blog, so it will stay.
Mayonnaise – Just something about the way “mayonaise” sounds as it rolls off the tongue. Yuck.
Ointment – Kind of like mayonaise, it just sounds icky.
Okay, your turn. Remember, keep it clean…
