Giveth and Taketh Away

In addition to adding new words to my vocabulary, I intend to extract a few along the way. As writing has become central to my existence, words I commonly used in the work place and in casual conversation suddenly seem crude and/or lacking.

Here is the short list...I welcome your suggestions as well:


Example: What did you get for Christmas?

I mean really, those 3 letters completely annihilate the generous act of giving.


Example: What is it that you want from this experience?

I am forever struggling with whether to use "that" or "which", so I'm eliminating it as an more struggle!
