I came across this article the other day about words that people like and dislike.
I have maintained a list of words and names that I like for a few years. Yes, really. I started it just to answer the question – if I could pick any name for myself, what would it be?
A couple of years ago, I met a lady who had changed her name to something that reminded me of a laxative. Trying to suppress a giggle, I asked her why she chose that name. She said she picked the name of a common, but distinctive roadside weed that grew in her neighborhood during her childhood. I didn’t add it to my list 😉 The astute amongst you will know that I have not changed my name … yet.
Anywho, I digress …
As I spend the odd moment thinking about words to keep my list up-to-date, here are the ones that I like:
- Bob – as pronounced by Rowan Atkinson
- Anywho 🙂
And the ones I don’t like? The list is surprisingly short:
Quite simply, the most ghastly word. Ghastly? I like that word 😉
Oh, and getting back to the article, I do not object to panties, but it is not a word I use. I am a knickers girl.
