Is there a word that pushes your buttons?

    @Pansyface - "gobsmacked" and "going forward" immediately sprang to mind followed by "jungle garden" till I got beyond the title and realised we're after "positivity".

    Rumbledethumps - never cooked it or eaten as I canna thole swede but it does sound lovely.  
    Librocubularist is a word I've recently learned and I shall use it next time OH mutters about me staying in bed and reading when it's cold or wet.

    Oooh I'm one of them! Don't think I could say it though😕

    Tried Sainsbury's rumbledethumps  - disappointing but had potential if you made it yourself. Swede is an underrated vegetable. Swede soup, swede with butter and black pepper, swede and potato mash Swede mixed with the bits stuck to the bottbom of a  roasting tin😋
    Swede chips coated in parmesan . Don't bother.

    Oh I see. Adoration is a religious thing, isn't it? I don't go in for religion, even in relation to puppies. I might stretch to a 'lovely' if required to gush.

    'Absolutely' is the one that gets me shouting at the TV, if that's what you mean. That has changed it's meaning apparently and is now a synonym of 'yes'.

    I'm reasonably sure Henry beheaded more than one wife. But he was a serial killer/psychopath so whether he adored anyone (except himself) is rather doubtful

    @raisingirl ' gushing'. Maybe it's the gushing that annoys me more than the word itself but I definitely haven't got the adoration or the gushing gene.

    So, I absolutely love that super adorable puppy.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
