I can't stand the word, hubby. I cringe every time I hear it or read it. I know most people find nothing wrong with it at all, but for some reason I just find it silly. Beyond silly. It brings to mind a husband who is a bit of dopey buffoon. Usually this dopey, buffoon of a husband is also pudgy. And oblivious. And balding, perhaps with comb-over tendencies.. No hubby ever had a nice full head of hair.
So hubby means a pudgy, dopey, oblivious, balding, comb-over wearing buffoon of a husband.
I have a friend who is simply horrified by the word moist. It actually makes her mad. She's a good sport when we razz her about it, but I happen to know that it actually angers her. Another word that she abhors is panties. And whatever you do--don't string both words together!
Are there any words that you can't stand?
