The word "preggers" makes me a little nauseated. No pun intended. I never understood how those terms slipped into our mainstream vernacular. "Preg-preg" is even worse...
Preggo makes me feel a little weird since I have three thoughts. I think of an eggo, then I think of the spaghetti sauce, and then I understand she means that she is pregnant. By that point, I'm all off track.

Stop being "anal" about the subject.
I hate that word. reminds me of anuses.
That is actually what the word means and what is trying to be said. If you are being anal, then you are talking out of your anus.

Not a word, people. Orient, oriented, orientation.
Think - Class, classify, classification. You do not classificate something, why would you want to orientate it, too?
I think ex president Bush could classificate something.

Here are some of my "favs", BTW.. "favs" is one I actually don't like. Also, poker face, (what the heck does that mean)? Another is, "Riddle me this", also, "whatever" and "knocked up"....as bad as preggers. Any oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp or icey hot. "Pause for thought" is another...I picture a dog scratching his head trying to think about something? I use that one myself sometimes though.

"Prego" means 'you're welcome" in Italian, so maybe that's how that got started.
She: "I'm with child!"

Another one: Irregardless. Used to be, when you heard someone use this word, you automatically knew they were an airhead. Now there is a whole generation that defends its use as a real word. Sad.edit on 3-2-2013 by captaintyinknots because: (no reason given)
I always thought it meant you're acting like you have a stick up your ass.
Somebody that's too rigid. So they're being anal.
Another is, "Riddle me this"
Anyhoo gets on my nerves, so does woo hoo
And on a related note, I am not particularly fond of the appendix -Nazi to signify anyone who gives a damn about something.
As in, "grammar nazi".
