Welcome to week 9 of the #MFRWauthor blog hop. When I saw this week's prompt my good friend was more than happy to flood me with all the words that make me say eww when she writes.
So there are a few words in writing that are ick for me. Most have to do with things of the sexual nature. Cum and/or cumming. I don't know why, but I really dislike that word. On the other end, I don't want to hear about her 'juices', seriously why use the word juice? It makes drinking OJ, apple juice, grape juice, etc, really weird when it's now associated with lady bits. Not a fan of cunt, or pussy and try to not use them in my own writing if I can avoid it.
The idea of spit or saliva also makes me go bleh.
For words not of a sexual nature, it'd have to be all the 'new age' words that seem to be picking up steam. Things like 'totes', 'adorbs', 'bae', 'THOT'. Does it really that that much longer to just say totally or adorable? I still don't get the point of bae no matter how many times my daughter tries to explain it to me.
My nephews explained THOT to me. Another one is 'cray'. I get the meaning of this one, but why not just say crazy? All these new slang words really make me feel my age and I never want to feel my age.
So those are a few of the words that make me go ick. What are some of yours?
Be sure to stop by some of the other blogs to see what words are on their list.
