It's Road Trip Wednesday again! Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question. This Week's Topic:
What words do you absolutely hate? Which ones do you adore?
I don't despise all curse words. Just a few, and mostly the ones that demean women. I actually don't even like calling them curse words, or swear words, and yet profanity just feels too formal. I cringe at any word describing bodily functions. I can't even bring myself to type them, and yet, in a house full of boys, I hear them all the time. My mom was a nurse, and she used words like void, empty, and vacate relating to bowels and bladders, and somehow even those words gross me out.
I love so many words, some for the way they sound and some for their many meanings. Here are just a few of my favorites.
