Potty Mouth

Now, I've never claimed to be a lady, and I've certainly dropped the F-bomb on this blog quite a few times, but it's a little unnerving to hear your 17-year-old daughter cussing up a storm on the phone. So from now on, we've made a pact to cut out all cussing completely. That includes shit, damn, fuck, and variations thereof. "Fuck" is allowed if it's in the lyrics of a song we're singing along with. And all cussing is specifically and most definitely forbidden when A) Playing video games (Silver!) and B) Driving (ME!)

That is all, carry on.

In meiner Erfahrung Frauen, die vulgäre Sprache sind nicht sehr Dame wie!

Well, that's pretty much what I said!
And it's way easier to curse in English. German just doesn't lend itself to cussing. It's all about defecation and a**.

Oh Dear GOD...I couldn't stop swearing when I drive if there was a cash incentive.

I guess we know whose fault it will be when my daughter's first sentence is "Green means GO asshole!"

I've made great strides in the past year and a half to control my road rage. I no longer flip people the bird, I blow them kisses with a smile!
My language, however...?
Still workin' on it!

I used to have co-workers accuse me of having a switch when I worked because on the outside of our establishment I was "Fuck you you bastard ass, donkey sucking whore!", and on the inside, just across the threshold, I was "Fudge monkeys to you you booger picking dorkwad!"

Also works around all kids both mine and others as well.

I'm with D N... I don't think I could possibly operate an auto-machine without the appropriate verbal "encouragement" to clue-impaired drivers. It's just an integral part of me... as much as my hands and feet.

But: Good On Ya for attempting this, Christina. Be sure and let us know how long it lasts. I'm betting an hour or two. ;-)

B.F. - isn't it amazing what our minds can do? I always ask Silver how come she can refrain from cussing at school, but apparently is unable to refrain from it at home. Her reply? Video games! They get her worked up every time!

Buck, I'm pretty sure I went all day today without slipping, but wouldn't bet the farm on it!
