Friday Five-WORDS!


Okay I have to tell you that as a writer certain words just annoy me. I think for my Friday five I will share my five least favorite words and why. Oh I am tagging you so look out!

1) Purchase. I hate when people say this word. It's a word people use when they are trying to sound official but have no clue about anything.

2) Portion. This word freaks me out by the way people say it. It just sounds weird! I hate it!

3) Panties. Sounds child molestery and scary. I just hate it!!!

4) Purse. Do all my hate words start with "P"? I just think it sounds dated and bad. I like "bag" myself.

5) Harvest. I hate this word because people try to use it when they refer to getting the eggs out when you do in vitro. "How many do they harvest?" Hello? I am not a farm.

BONUS WORD I HATE!
6) MOIST! Please it's gross! Do I need a reason? Just say it and try not to puke.

I am trying to bring back certain dated words, like Pocketbook and Davenport. : )

When I was a newspaper reporter and typing up mundane things like obits and weddings, the word that gave me fits was "discharge." Eww. Hospital patients are not discharged, they are dismissed!

Brie said...

Love this list and agree with you on most! I know someone who likes to work "moist" into describing food positively... YAAAAHHHUCKKKKK

Belle in Bloom said...

I am the same way about "purse"! I always use "bag".
My MIL...oh, the MIL...she calls my boy's underwear "panties"!!! WTH?!? Drives.Me.Crazy. I told my husband to PLEASE correct her before I lose it! Just another thing for MIL and me to disagree on. But I'm totally right on this one! Don't you agree?!

Melissa said...

I hate the word panties too, but my least fav has to be moist! So gross! I'm glad you agree!

Her Shabbyness: Sweet 'n Southern said...

Always Organizing said...

I so agree with you on panties and moist! Yuck!

AMY said...

Too funny. Not too many words bother me, but the way people say them, move their mouths or over accentuate some really make me hypersensitive! Living in the south makes this hard! One word I hate...BLOATED, it just sounds gross.

Europafox said...

ugh I hate no 3 as well - only pervy weirdos use that word!! thanks for tagging me! I'll have a good think about it!

Polo Mama to Girls said...

I've always thought that word "nipple" when used for baby bottles was a little too explanatory for my tastes... I fed my babies with a combination of breastfeeding and bottles with formula, and of course, my own nipple are, in fact, nipples. But, to call that mounded piece a rubber a "nipple" always kind of irked me...

Don't feel bad about tagging me for wedding pics! I'm glad that I have my wonderful hubby of 31 years...what are pictures in comparison to that? Nothing...compared to the other things we lost. I'm going to post some shots of Katrina at our house soon...How's Landon doing? Thinking about all of you...xoxo
