Went to dinner with the girls from the days of being an underpaid reporter from the Engineering News. Was great. After a coupla whiskeys started debating about words that sound gross or give you the heebies. Not necessarily words that mean something disgusting, but words that just SOUND awful. Lauren has a serious probelm with: 'moist' and 'making love.' She rolls her eyes and gets all freaked out when we say thsoe words. She also, understandably, thinks 'stool' is a horrible word.
Other words we thought were gross:
panties (another one of Lauren's)
On the other hand, words that sound fab are:
taschenpuffer' (hipflask in German)
pantoffoli' (slippers in Italian)
What do you think?
Give me your awful/awesome sounding words...
