BUCKET LIST

"The expression makes me cringe every time I hear it -- and we've been hearing it for several years. I'm surprised it isn't already in your master list. Let's emphasize life and what we do during it. It's such a grim way of looking at 'what I want to do,' and often it is in selfish terms." Shea Hoffmitz, Hamilton, Ont.

"Getting this phrase on the Banished Word List is on my bucket list!" Frederick Fish, Georgia

 SUPERFOOD

"It's food. It's either healthful or it's not. There is no 'super' involved." Jason Hansen, Frederic, Mich.

 BONELESS WINGS

"Can we just call them chicken (pieces)?" John McNamara, Lansing, Mich.

 GURU

"Unless you're teaching transcendental meditation, Hinduism or Buddhism, please don't call yourself a guru just because you think you're an expert at something. It's silly and pretentious. Let other people call you that, if they must."Mitch Devine, Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.
