How is it possible that the word “Moist” is so completely icky and largely useless (except as a way to creep people out), whereas its rhyming twin word is so totally cool?
Moist is creepy. Foist is awesome.
Foist fairly quivers with possibilities. Foist makes you sound like you’ve got an evil plan. Or maybe just a mildly disreputable plan. It’s got ne-er-do-well written all over it. But in a good way.
Of course, Moist is an adjective, and Foist is a verb, so it’s not really a fair fight. But still.
I’m just sayin.
