Words that should be banned








I've always been strangely freaked out by certain words and I've found that list growing as of late. Believe me this doesn't even scratch the surface. And I promise you, if something (particularly cake) is ever presented as super moist, I will not eat it. Not even a crumb. And moist towlettes? Forget about it. Are there any words that make you want to throw up in your mouth a bit? Or am I the only crazy pants? Clearly I have a ton and when you put them all in a sentence, the grossness is astronomical. But if I know you and you use these words, I promise not to judge.

  1. You nailed it. This is pretty much my exact list, although hemorrhage does look lovely in that font you chose. :)

  2. This is so funny, I was only just talking about the word moist and how weird it is. There are some words that I try and avoid.

  3. Oh this made me chuckle. I have an ever growing list too, and annoyingly everyone seems to find it hilarious to 'slip' in these words constantly just to watch me cringe.

    You have one of my words up there. The 'M' one. Hate it. My others (this is a big deal to write them) are pamphlet, gusset and cusp. Ick. Ick. Ick.

    Ps I think writing them in pretty fonts helps. I might try that ;)

  8. I hate the word "pee" with a passion. My fiance thinks it's funny when I say "urinate" instead, which I somehow find slightly better because it's more medical.

  9. Exactly. I never thought of cumulus, buttt moist and loaf are disturbing. I HATE panties and pocketbook. Ick. Oh, and when people say panty hose, I die. Gross.
