Whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do when they bug you?
And the beat goes on...
Do you have words that you absolutely will not say when referring to something/someone?
I have a *real* problem with the word weiner when used to describe a dachshund.
And I don't know why cause I wasn't the kid who EVER referred to a boy's anatomy much less called it a weiner.
Hot dogs have always been hot dogs in my world-NEVER weiners!
I also have a problem with the word pee.
I have always said, "I have to go to the bathroom." I would never say I have to go p**. See, I can't even write it. I raised my kids to avoid the word pee. My birth month flower is a sweet pea and I won't even acknowledge that because of the p word.
I don't remember my parents ever using the word. Maybe it was the times I grew up in.
I also will not use the word "cop" when referring to a police officer. That one I have figured out..to me it shows disrespect to the profession. But, do I know why I think it does? Not a clue...
Am I the only person in blogland who has weird words that bug them, that they won't utter because they just feel it goes against every fiber in their being?
Well, now's the time to say it loud and say it proud. Leave me replies telling me about those words that won't cross your lips. Those words that you have skirted around as long as you have drawn breath. Those words that you will not tolerate your children uttering(I have a high speed come apart if, to this day, my children say "shut up" or the f-word).
Am I the only one?
