My Word Lists
I used this word one day with my family and they said it was not a word. I enjoyed teaching them the meaning and sharing a new word with them!!
Least Favorite Word:
I don't allow this word in my house. I think it is mean and degrading to the person it is directed to. Just a pet pieve of mine!!
