All Things Moist

I recently started following a group known as #SoTrendy. Let me start off by saying I absolutely love you; you are represented well at almost every show I’ve been to, you do amazing coverage, have great social media presence, and I generally like every post you put up…

…however, there is one thing that I am confused about and it’s your use of the word “moist”. For some reason, that word makes me cringe and I don’t know why.


I get it, but then again, I don’t. It’s like a half-assed version of the word “wet” but sounds 50 times more disgusting.

Here are a few things I think about when I hear the word moist: Water damage. Chewed up food. Soggy bread. Various infections (yeah, I’m not linking that).

I could go on, but that means I’d have to use that word in more sentences.

Honestly, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m probably not cool enough to understand the nuances of why you use the word. It is one of the most hated words in the English language. If anyone can explain; I am genuinely interested.

Seriously, #SoTrendy — don’t think of this as hate, because I like you. But for the love of God…

…or perhaps it already has happened and I’m far too late.

You can follow #SoTrendy on Facebook, as well as Instagram. So feel free to check them out!

They are awesome, despite their use of the word moist.
