Do you ever stop to think about what a word means to you? Or what a specific sound can do to your entire being… like “nails on a chalkboard”? Ugh, just the thought of nails on a chalkboard sends most of us into a hysterical whirling dervish!
Since I jumped on the bandwagon with most of you out there and started “blogging” I have really thought a lot about words. Words in general and not just what the definition that “Webster’s” dictionary has given them, but what they mean to me, or Tracey’s Definition.
I have LOVED words and I have most HATED words. Words that make my skin crawl. Hmmm, should I share them with you? Oh, what the heck, I will. I would love to hear some of your words also.
Shenanigans, Trousers, Underpinnings, Skivvies, Gams, Pocketbook, Davenport (my grandma would use this word all the time for a sofa), Supper (instead of dinner, so retro).
Words to describe the female breast that starts with a T and is 3 letters (I am not even going to put it in print, that’s how much I hate it), Panties…….I have always hated this word, well as far back as I can remember anyway. I have others, I can’t think of them now, but why dwell on the negative, right?
Please watch this clip , (wait for the whole page to load) and you will see that I was delighted to hear that someone else shared my disdain for this word. Yes! James Lipton interviewing The Cast of Modern Family. Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s response for most hated word was PANTIES! He also stated that the word MOIST made his list, and I have to agree. That is a hideous word.
