Banished Words

 I saw this on the news yesterday morning and had to share.  The Banished Words for 2021.  I wanted to give my thoughts on them too. 

1. COVID-19 (COVID, coronavirus, Rona)  -- I think we are all over hearing those words.  It's not going to stop either.  Not until the numbers go down, people get vaccinated, a semblance of normal life returns....

2. Social Distancing  -- Ugh.  Even introverts are tired of this word.

3. We're all in this together  -- This has been determined to be a lie and I'm totally tired of hearing it.

4. In an abundance of caution  --  Yes, we get it, that's why the world is canceled.  Find some new verbiage please, let's mix it up.

5. In these uncertain times  --  Sigh.  The news says this all the time.  Again, let's mix it up a little.

6. Pivot  -- I don't feel like I've heard this one much, so I have no opinion.

7. Unprecedented  -- Yep, again, we get it.  

8. Karen  --  I think this is funny.  I feel bad for all the real life Karen's though.  The ones that aren't complete you know what's.  

9. Sus  --  I use sus.  I'm guilty.  Especially when I am sus of people cheating!  

10. I know, right?  -- I feel like this has been said a lot for a few years.  This one doesn't bother me.

Which one are you most tired of hearing?


  1. I don't like "in an abundance of caution." It's annoying.

  2. I say "I know, right?" at least 2 dozen times a day. Or at least "right?"
