Words And Phrases I Dislike
Here are a few words and phrases I don’t like. I’m not sure I can come up with a reason for disliking them. This list is by no means comprehensive.
1) Goofy, Goofball, ‘Goofing Off’ – I know why I hate this one. It makes you sound like a youth pastor.
2) Stink. In any sense. “That trash can stinks.” or “I stink at baseball.”
3) Egging one on. YUCK.
4) Horny. Actually, I think I’ve used this in writing. But it was only because the character would have used it. Which grossed me out. But still. I never say that word.
