  3. I wouldn't want to be a dental hygienist. I decide this the other day while dying of boredom at the dentist. What a gross and boring job. Hmmm. Much like the answer you picked. ;)

  4. I so agree with your #4. I hate cruelty of any kind.

    And working in a meat-packing plant would be gross.

  8. I love both uses of "gnarly." And "genitalia" is up there with "puberty" as a gross word.

  16. That's so funny I see what you mean about picking a similar word for number 2. (Huh... that sounds so icky lol) Using the slang may be vulgar to some, but it doesn't make me cringe like the "v" word! Number 10 is fabulous!

  29. See I love so many words. Gnarly Is awesome, It goes with burl, or bur depending on what side of the pond.

    Genitalia is an awesome word - Lol I just realised in my novel the girl is Natalie, but The Djinn (Geni) calls her Natalia and it got shortened to Talia - OMG ACKKKKK that is so funny! I like genitalia, much better than some of the crude words for it.


    Your number ten is so sweet, Great job and Great Answers!
