WWKD: Pukey Words

Dear Kasey,
I always knew that certain words gave me an unnerving cringe, such as moist, tender, meaty, beefy, juicy, panties, etc. However, I'm finding more words are starting to hurt the ear drums. New words that I have recently discovered to be unpleasant: whiz, supper, diddling, piddle, and of course the list goes on and on. My question is, are all people bothered by certain words or is it just me? Why do you think we hate the sounds of these words? Also, why can't all people be as cool as we are? I know that one isn't really tied into the first part, but I have asked myself that last one multiple times throughout the years and have not found a satisfactory answer.

Moist is one of the worst. I think words used to describe food that people also use to describe non-food items are usually pretty vile. Like SUCCULENT. BLAH! Gross. Another example, someone recently described their life as "tasty." Get a grip on your grossness. That's my response to that.

The word "panties" is just too vile. I prefer them called underpants. I recently got an email from Victoria's Secret saying they were having a "Panty Raid Sale" and it made me wonder if they understood that panty raids are not something girl's look forward to happening. That's just gross movie shit.

I hate the word "meal" it just sounds icky to me. If someone says they had a nice meal I don't believe them, because they called it a meal.

And the word "blouse" if people are using it seriously. If people are joking about blouses that's one thing. Blouses are silly. If you're referring to your shirt as a blouse you are either 80 or a weirdo. I don't like people using the word "top" when referring to shirts either. It's a shirt! It can be a fancy shirt, but it's a shirt.

As far as your last question, I wish I knew. We were born rad. Some people don't have those kinds of advantages in life. Throughout history the super rad* have had to suffer the non-rad.

*If you read this blog you qualify as super rad. One of the many perks of reading.

Yes. I agree that blouse is terrible. I hate hearing people say slacks as well. I just want normal words. Yes, thank you for including succulent in the list. That is awful. You're so wise!

When people say the word 'meal' to me, I get a flashback to feeding nasty mealworms to my pet salamander. Although I loved my salamander, the mealworms made me queasy and I wished it could have survived on some other bug.

And yes, I also agree that we are rad.

And what ass made Dick a nickname for Richard?? And why do the Dick's keep making us say that word when referring to them? Dick means Dick. It's not a name, unless its a bad name.

And can people also stop saying things like "lets touch base" - yuck! I dont want to touch their bases

Meal worms are the sickest. We had Anoles and had to decapitate the meal worms before feeding them to the Anoles. Sicko! I also thought of another word I really don't care for: fond. I'm fond of this...though, I am a hypocrite because I have used it in the past.

Oh, I also hate when pop is referred to as "soda".

I don't know why someone would do that to their child. Name them, Dick. It's just mean. Parent's are cruel.

I hate "Let's Touch Base" too! I hate all kinds of managerial catch phrases. So terrible.
