Sometimes I feel like I am the only one on an island - surrounded by a sea of Big Bad Cussers. I just don't curse and cuss as a rule but that's not to say, I never say a "bad word". Gee when did it become an issue, where those of us who don't cuss, have to explain ourselves? After working with young children and babies for years and years - I trained myself not to cuss. (So yes Mommies it CAN be done, only if you want to.) Oh I might have "thought" about a cuss word, now and then - especially while changing a poopy diaper. But I'd just don't say it. I know I know, it's strange. (Except when that idiot tried to cut me off or the IRS wants to do a audit)
This was not always the case with me. When I first heard the F-WORD, I loved that word. My folks were shocked when they heard me say it the first time and I was immediately reprimanded. So I just knew, that I had to have 2 languages - one at home and one at school. Anyone remember the Name-Game? Or "My father works at the Ship Yard" while holding your tongue????
After high school, I started a union job in San Francisco and BOY did I hear a lot of cussing and cursing back then. I joined right in. There was a even a time, when someone said I talked like a truck-driver! Me? I didn't feel too good about that comment. That's when I really tried to curb it.
Then kids came into the picture - innocent little minds that could hardly pronounce bad words yet could always get a snicker from us, every-time they said "TRUCK." Really now, were we THAT immature? I really tried hard to train myself and for the most part it did work. Now, did my 3 precious and perfect sons grow up to speak the Queens English???? I wish I could say they did, but NO they cuss. At least they didn't get that from me and they are careful to not over do it with the F-words or I will say something. Hey, I'm the Mom - I can still do that!
- if I do slam my finger in the door and I let out a big "FFFF-TRUCK" it's my grown sons who now snicker at me.
