My Favorite Words

My favorite words… this week’s Listicle is going to be a doozy!  Next week’s topic is 10 Things I Wish for Christmas.  Hopefully, the Hubs is paying attention for that one.  So, without further adieu… I give you my 10 Favorite Words.

My 10 Favorite Words

  1. Whopperjawed – As in, “Your socks are whopperjawed, let me fix them.”
  2. Sh*t – This, my readers, was the first cuss word my children uttered.  In context.
  3. D&mn – This, was the second cuss word my children uttered.  Also in context.
  4. Adieu – I know I always say it during Monday Listicles… but it cracks me up, I don’t know why.
  5. Mommy – Well, for the most part.  Unless its the 1000th question in the last 5 minutes that all begin with “Mommy?”
  6. Awesomesauce – This one comes courtesy of the accounts payable manager at work.  The kids and I say it all the time.
  7. Boom Baby – I know, this is two words.  But, the Hubs taught the kids this awhile ago and they will yell it out while playing games.
  8. Holy Porsche – This is two words also (I am an accountant and I can count.)  But, when Lightning McQueen says this about Sally Porsche, I bust out laughing every time.
  9. Nuts – If you were a fan of Jericho, you will know exactly what I mean.  (I tried to find a clip of this episode, but couldn’t.)  Basically, in the episode, there was a story about the grandpa and how during the war he received a missive about surrendering and he wrote back “Nuts.”  Kind of a middle finger, in a way.  Well, when CBS tried to cancel Jericho… the fans sent over 40,000  pounds of nuts sent to CBS.  So, I tend to use NUTS instead of cussing.  (Of course, see #2 and #3.)
  10. Dude – I say this all the time, as well… to males and females.  Of course, Mo usually says, “I am not a dude, I am a dudette.”

And, there you have it… my 10 Favorite Words.  Make sure you stop by tomorrow for my first week of co-hosting Tasty Tuesday with Anyonita Nibbles!

  1. I LOVE your list! Awesomesauce and Dude…we can definitely be friends!

  2. Visiting from Listicles. I had never heard of “awesomesauce” before…but you are the second person I’ve seen list this. I kinda love it :). And can I say I would much rather kids use words IN context than OUT of context…regardless of the word, haha.

  3. I was so proud, but don’t tell anyone. LOL.

    I love when the kids say boom baby! I’m pretty proud of that one. This is more of a sentence but I like when mo asks “what are you looking at” hmmm I don’t know if I have a favorite word…..I guess I use sweet a lot. Trying to remember that word I said all the time a few years ago, use to drive you nuts though lol
