O, hydrates

Nonchalant Jen requests:

Please banish “low carb.” I am sick of seeing it on every food item and restaurant menu. I am not on the Atkins diet, the Zone diet or any other miserable diet for that matter, so I don’t want to be looked at like some social pariah for eating a carrot or a piece of bread!

And are people so lazy that they cannot say “ohydrate”?

I’ll never give up my “carbs” or my “ohydrates.”

  1. I love to hate universal truncation as well. Example: The Ottawa Senators hockey team is the Sens. I’m waiting for people to get impatient with single syllables and reducing words further to just single phonemes. I blame TV.
