What I am going to be posting about today:
The word “crotch”
Ok – I’m only (sort of) kidding about that one. I just got a laugh out of some of the comments posted about my last blog regarding my use of the word “crotch”. Apparently one of my readers (who shall remain nameless) just loves that word, but her husband hates it. And it got me thinking about my own husband and his hatred of a few words: blouse, panties, and moist. I’m constantly trying to come up with sentences using those 3 words just to annoy him. Now I’m thinking that, just for kicks, I should start throwing the word crotch into the mix. I wonder if he hates that word too? The combinations of things I could say using all 4 words are mind-boggling. . .
I love to say big, fancy words that most people have no idea what they mean. Would you believe I correctly used the word curmudgeon in the proper context just last week without missing a beat? I also love to say things that shock people just a little bit. Nothing offensive or rude, but something that makes people stop and give me a second look. Like the word penis for example. I love to say penis.
I also have a few words that I hate:
Zit – ewww – I cringe even typing that word. I’ve had blemishes and pimples, but never zits. UGH. What a horrible word.
Rag (depending on the context) – my husband calls every washing utensil a “rag”, which drives me batty. Please don’t call my wash cloth (something I will be using on my face and other “intimate areas”) a rag. Rags are dirty.
Fart – maybe this one has derived from my mother, who also hates this word, and insisted we call them “rudy-toot-toots” as a child (I am so not kidding). I’m fine with toot, quiff, break wind, barking spider, pass gass, and even cut the cheese. But please don’t fart in my presence.
I’m sure there are other words that make me cringe – someone as anal-retentive as me must have other things that drive me crazy. But my sleep-deprived mind is lacking the ability to think right now. So, what about you? What words do you love/hate?
