So, I was hangin’ out at work, and on my break I had a brief discussion about words I would consider ‘delightfully unpleasant’. I think we all know what these kind of words are, even if we call them something else (fantastically uncomfortable, etc.)
The initial word in question was ‘moist’. It’s a blasé example now because everyone dislikes the word moist, (well, I don’t, hence this post) and they can articulate why, but it does a good job of illustrating what I’m getting at.
There are words that – probably because of what we associate them with – make your brain crawl when you think of them. I think we should use them more, because they are hilarious.
So, just throwing this out here, try using these words more to spice up a conversation while making someone very uncomfortable:
- girth (and its derivatives: girthy, etc.)
- seep (and again, derivatives like seeping or seepage are super fun)
Can you think of more? Leave suggestions in the comments!
