    That Does Not Gross Me Out!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Wreybies, Nov 8, 2009.

    Simple enough.

    Admit to something that you know might gross out the average Joe/Jane that doesn't phase you.

    Dog kisses.

    Right on the mouth. It doesn't even freak me out if the puppy slips me the tongue in its exuberance.

    Blood doesn't gross me out, deep cuts and stitches...that sort of thing. I always look at it and calmly go, dude you might need to get that seen about. :D

    I have an iron stomach. I can hold any kind of conversation while eating: blood, guts, whatever. Someone could be vomiting right there in front of me and I’d keep shoveling.

    Peanut butter on a hamburger does not gross me out.

    It's actually really good, my whole family eats them that way.

    Dead animals, and dead things in general. I find them oddly beautiful.

    Uh Blood doesn't gross me out. Doesn't matter if its a little blood or someone is gushing like some gushing thing.

    No, blood doesn't bother me either. Back in college, one of my frat brothers bounded through a plate glass door (one that ordinarily was never closed, and which had been spotlessly cleaned). I was right there wen it happened, and held a sweatshirt compressed over a spurting artery in his leg while another brother drove us to te infirmary.

    Also, I watched both of my children getting delivered by C-section, and took pictures.

    Dead bodies doesn't gross me out.
    My grandfather is a mortician; therefore, I find the whole process of handling remains fascinating. :D

    Sushi!

    I know that's not like really gross or anything, but there are many who wouldn't even consider sushi.

    I lubz it! :D

    Oh, on the same vein... rare meat. I like my steak to squirm out of the way of the fork and knife.

    Its easier for me to find things that do gross me out, my bf teases that I sound like a five year old going around saying 'ewww gross out' all day long. I have a weak stomache, so what a challenge trying to think of something that doesn't disturb me but bothers the average person.

    hmm.

    Thinking.

    i'm not sure if this grosses that many people out, but...

    1. eating out of the same pot as everyone at the table (it's common in non-western countries, but westerners think it's gross)

    2. sharing food or a drink with someone i just met

    3. new orleans tap water (i'll drink it!... even if you can see floaty things... that is kinda gross, though...)

    4. hospitals in third-world (developing) countries

    drinking from the same straw as someone else. NOT that big of a deal.
