You know how it's 99% disgusting to throw-up? It stinks, burns, splashes everywhere, makes your eyes water, and cramps up your stomach muscles. BUT, there is the 1%. That far corner of your mind that you don't want to admit is there in the middle of your five alarm fire of hot mess. It is the part that is enjoying the vomiting process. Hopefully, my blog is that 1% .

Tru Dat

There are words and phrases that make my skin crawl. Keeping in mind that my ability to navigate the English language has already been trumped by my children, I represent zero authority. I think I’m just an asshole. Some of these are perfectly fine, they just hurt my brain. Anywho, here is my list of grievances that I would like to see disappear from the language:

Anywho - Zesty - Fascia - Happy Camper - In no particular order

24/7 - Hob-Knob - Repurpose - Move the Cheese - Outside the Box

Double-Speak - Short and Curlies - Lectern - Case in Point

Vis-a-vis - Stalagmites (but strangely, not Stalactites) - Chipper

Parka - Rouse - Effervescent - Obsequious - Uber

Porno (but not Porn) - Not for nothing (N’ fo’ nu’in) - Palimony

Sheaf - Tummy - Season to Taste (Sean) - Regina

Turn of Phrase - Salacious - Break Bread - Buzzwords

Hiccup (when describing anything other than the bodily function)

Break Wind - Scandalous - Tongs - Libation - Aerate

Smegma - Gift of Gab
