I’m calling this a salad even though it’s technically more of a “slaw”. Unfortunately, Matt despises that word and I don’t want him to make that “Um…ew” face that I find hilarious except when it’s directed at my beautiful Asian slaw. Excuse me… salad.
What words do you inexplicably hate? My sister-in-law, Kathy, hates the word “moist” (so I try to use it as often and as awkwardly as I can). “Boy, those (meat)balls sure look moist!”
I can’t stand the word “meal”. As in (bored diner waitress plops down plate) “Enjoy your meal.” (I convulse and try to picture my happy place).
Well, this slaw is very moist and would make a great addition to any meal. (I think I just died).
