This week’s topic is: Words that make you go ick!
I know a lot of people have an aversion to words like moist, but I can’t think of any individual words I don’t like. I really don’t see why people don’t like moist. But I have a huge issue with potty humor, also called fourth-grade humor. Jokes about farts and poops and other bathroom things just gross me out and I don’t find it funny. I also can’t handle vomit – not the word vomit, but if I see anyone vomit or hear anyone gagging I will gag.
I also can’t handle vomit – not the word vomit, but if I see anyone vomit or hear anyone gagging – in real life or on TV – I will gag. In our house, it is automatically my husband’s job to clean up any vomit – from pets or children.
