Are there any words that you don't like? Words that just give you the  

One of my friends doesn't like the word "vein".
My old roommate hated the word "ointment".
A lot of people get grossed out by "moist".

I've also heard: paste, bunion, womb, and plop.

I have a big fear of sp...spi...spiders, so I hate that word.

But even more than that...the word that really gets to me?


How disgusting is that word? Sick. Maybe that's why I don't like leftovers.

When I asked Mary Cameron if there was a word she didn't like, she said:

I don't like to hear "no".




  1. It's funny how different people are annoyed by certain words.

    I hate the word moist! It makes me think of gross things.

  2. I hate the word swag not because it gives me the heebie jeebies just because it is really over used.

    It's funny you mentioned "Moist"...I know so many people who hate that word. It doesn't bother me.

    However, the one word that guarantees a loss of appetite for me is: Cartilage (don't ask me why...haha)

  4. Hmmmm, thats a hard one for me. I dont get grossed out by medical stuff, but the word polyps freaks me out. Oh, and thrush, fleas, and mold get me. How strange! Great topic!

  5. I approve of this mention in your blog much more than the other one.

  6. The words I hate are a little to inappropriate for blogger. ahhh

  7. Pus. Doesn't get worse than that. Period.

  8. I don't like words that vulgarly refer to the vagina. Pretty much all of those are nasty. YECK.

  9. Randy, I am in agreement with you - the word "pus" tops them all. I cringe whenever I see/hear it.

  10. OK, keeping with the medical theme...here's one for any of you ladies who've given birth. I cannot understand why all of the birth prep books could not come up with a word a little gentler than "tear". I would see it repeatedly and cringe in terror every time I read it. The whole experience was actually quite wonderful and nothing like what that word had me thinking it would be.
