Words are weird. Have you ever noticed? Sometimes, it'll just hit me. I'll say some word in a sentence or use it in my writing and stop for a second and think, fork is a weird word.
     This week's Road Trip Wednesday is all about the words we love and hate.

117th Road Trip Wednesday!
Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
I have it on good authority that Kody hates the word "panties," and Steph can't stand "supper."
What words do you absolutely hate? Which ones do you adore?
     Okay, I've been sitting here for way too many minutes trying to think of words I hate. The only ones I could come up with are... yep, swear words. It's true. I hear them, read them, and I cringe. They bug me. They annoy me. They anger me when people are spewing them in front of my kids.
     Before you try to pull me off of my high-and-mighty horse, I'll admit that I went through a potty-mouth phase in my teen years. I got over it, but still used the occasional word when I felt particularly angry or whatever. Then I had this roommate in college who said something to me that I will never forget. She said that using swear words shows a lack of intelligence. I haven't used one since.
     Ooh, I thought of another word I don't like- eagerly. Don't know why. But it bugs me. Eager is okay. Eagerly? Not so much.
     As to words I love... I don't know if there's any one word I love. Words combined to make a beautiful song, or story, or scene, that's what I love. Later today I'll probably think up some words I really love or hate, but for now, that's the best I can do.
