It seems most poets and writers have pet peeve words. "John Tottenham says that saying 'awesome' in his presence is like 'waving a crucifix in a vampire's face [http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-holland-20120106,0,2183189.column?track=icymi].'" I could go a lifetime without hearing "ethereal" or self conscious theory terms like "objective correlative" or "slippage." Anyone care to share theirs?
