|How cute is this?|
There are two words that annoy the crap out of me when I hear adults use them: "sammich" and "tummy."
As mentioned here, I'm not a fan of adults affectedly globbering about like giant children. 9 times out of ten, when an adult tries to act "cute" for anyone other than possibly their significant other, they fail hugely and instead, become grotesque.
Here's why I particular dislike "sammich" and "tummy:"
- Sammich: I was a kid once. I never, ever said or even heard the word "sammich." You know what I said when referring to two pieces of bread with something inside them? Sandwich.
- Tummy: if you are over age 12, you should not use this word in reference to yourself. Instead, use "stomach" or "abdomen." "Belly" is okay if referring to a protruding abdomen as in "pregnancy belly" or "beer belly." I will grudgingly accept the phrase "tummy tuck," only as it's become commonly used when referring to cosmetic abdominal surgery. But if I hear you say that your husband has "a tummy ache," I will possibly *throw up gallons of steaming, rancid vomit on your shoes and it will probably splash in your eyes a little.
