Who thought disgust was so important in driving our manners and behaviours?
He said ‘moist’ a lot of times, so if you weren’t sure if you were sensitive to the word before… well, you should have a really good idea now.
For me, it’s how people say it that makes all the difference. Even so, ‘moist’ doesn’t bother me as much as other words like ‘fluids’ or ‘squelch’.
I thought it was just a weird word thing that people have, but lo and behold, it’s an important evolutionary factor.
So what words, if any, do you find gross?
