When I pick a booger that's too gooey to flick but I'm too lazy to get some toilet paper to wipe it off on. Guess that's what the bottom of the couch is for. That sumbitch is gonna recline on its own soon.
This is a silly pet peeve of mine, but I dislike writing the word, "thing(s)."
I don't know why I'm so opposed to this, but I guess it's because I don't feel like that term really describes anything nor do I think it adds much to a sentence. I just try to avoid writing that term, and replace "thing(s)" with a different word or subject.
However, I don't mind saying "thing(s)" out loud verbally.
Interaction with people you are technically related to.
Cat shampoo that is basically an invitation to be clawed.
That point in a conversation with old people where the key points have been stated but they have a few minutes more rambling left in them.
The forlorn hope that the tube of Pringles you opened a month ago and neglected will still be fresh.
