Okay, please bear with me. Today, I am revealing some of my inner-junior high humor. I almost said "harness my inner junior high humor." But "harness" would seem to indicate a seldom-used quality. Those who know me well, would understand...that my inner junior high humor...is a little too obvious...a little too often.
Over the holidays (Thanksgiving, if you must know), my extended family and I were sitting around discussing words that we just can't stand. I think the discussion was actually started after a commercial for "Salonpas" came on.
(What in the WORLD were the makers of "Salonpas" thinking when they named their back-soothing product???)
I thought it would be FUN to share these lists with you, and see if any of these words are on your own most hated list. Don't worry--I have full permission to share my family's lists. Only...a couple fo them didn't want their names shared. I will let you guess, though! And I might even give you a hint or two!
World's Grossest Words...According to my family:
My young nephew
decal, petabolism (rhymes with metabolism...and I'm not real sure what it means)
An older nephew
biology (or "fake science," as he called it!), Walmart (somebody's mama must drag him there too much!!), gasoline, buttermilk, expire
Salonpas, pup, dukey, booger, belly (as you can imagine--these words were repeated FREQUENTLY to her afterwards!)
pustule, coagulated, scab (notice a theme here? Somebody has a fixation with body wound words), boob, fungus, fungi, or any form of "fungus"
Not gonna say
pus, frenzy, aluminum (somebody can't say this word!!!), bunion
Not gonna say
like (the word that he says young people use, like WAY to much), onomatopoeia (oh yeah, I can spell it!) on sale (the words that he says cost him a lot of $$$)
salve, bleu cheese (he said with a shivver)
panty, sale (again, a word that costs him $$$), LSU
The phrase "ain't got done", ain't, thankless, puke, XMas
Can you guess?
No, can't, retail
What words are on YOUR most hated list?
