Words and Phrases that Make Me Grind My Teeth

"Delicious" and its derivatives when used in contexts unrelated to food - "deliciously wicked", ugh.

(Similarly, "sexy" in any other context than sex - "This is a very sexy issue at the moment", shudder, shudder, shudder.)

  2. I may be a mummy against yummy, I'm afraid.
