Words That Sound Weird In My Head When Put Together


For some reason, I tend to think about the most random things whenever I'm in the bathroom. For example, I was brushing my teeth one morning, and suddenly "baby carrots" popped into my head. I had never thought about it before, but then suddenly an image of a pointy orange baby popped into my head. I wonder if the person who created Cabbage Patch Dolls was thinking the same thing...

+ = ?


It's not just "baby carrots" that sound weird to me, other common nouns such as "earphones" and "dining table" (a table that dines?) also seem strange in my head.

Are there any common nouns that make you say to yourself, "...well, that sounds unusual" ?

    Haha-- interesting. I'm strange with words...I think one thing that bothers me to no end is when I'm using a word repetitively and after awhile it doesn't look right and I begin to forget that it's even a word.
    I was reorganizing an area at work and had to write the word shelf about ten times...it started to stick out to me, strangely.

    But yes-- words...they can be a really doozy.

    Haha.
    -M.

    I don't think there are any particular words that sound strange in my head. :P If I think about or look at a word way too much, though, it starts looking weird, but I think that happens to everyone.

Something to say?
