words we love to hate

I read a blog that gave my wife, Tara, and I quite a few laughs. It was about having an aversion to certain words. So, I was thinking about the words I really don’t like saying or even reading. These words make the muscles in my neck tighten up and cause me to get annoyed. I’m not quite sure why. I hope thinking about this will make you laugh too. Here’s my top 10 list:

1. Whimsical (and Whimsy)

2. Pus

3. Moist

4. Salmon (when people pronounce the “L”)

5. Gender

6. Dungarees

7. Icky

8. Pop (it’s “soda”)

9. Pimple

10. Pew

What words would you add to the list? Why?

    I should have added “vomit” and “puke”. Gross…

    It’s only “soda” if you life on the east coast…… Everywhere else it’s POP!
