I am 100% unable to zoom in on a “least-favorite word.” Don’t know if I’m tired or burned out or scatterbrained or what but this is a hard no go for me. Let’s talk about least-favorite-adjacent instead.
Not a big fan of disappointed. I’m so disappointed in you. This whole thing is such a disappointment. How can you disappoint your family this way? Yep. Nope.
Also not a fan of bloated. No emotional baggage there, I just don’t like the sound of it. Blow-ted. Bloooowww-tteeeddd. Blooaaaattteeedddd. Ugh.
And mealy? Give me a break. How does “mealy” not make your stomach clench just a little?
See also bile, fecal spray, phlegm, giblets, and mucus.
Linda hosts Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “least-favorite word.” Use your least-favorite word in your post. If you can’t decide on one, use a word that just really bugs you. Enjoy!
