This week’s topic for YA Highway’s Road Trip Wednesday is…
What words do you absolutely hate? Which ones do you adore?
The only two words I can think of off the top of my head in my cold-addled state are retard(ed) and gay. And when I say that, I mean the words themselves aren’t the problem. It’s when people take them and use them to mean something derogatory that I absolutely can’t stand.
And my absolute favorite word is defenestrate. Which is unfortunate because, really, how many opportunities do you really get to use this word in everyday conversation?
