Story #1 Between a Dad and his son, don’t tell Mom.
Is cursing bad? Funny? A perception of intelligence? Mean?
The answer lies in its use, descriptive language can serve many purposes. It can vividly express and cause emotions.
I do know I curse a lot as my wife is constantly pointing out and is evident from the following story.
On my way to the mall with my 4 year old son and 6 year old daughter we got stuck in traffic. After 20 minutes of sitting and answering my sons question “are we almost there” umpteen times, he proceeds to roll down the window are yell “Get moving you jackass I have to pee”. I know this probably makes me a bad dad, but I couldn’t stop laughing, my daughter couldn’t stop laughing, the guy in the car next to us was laughing as well. I quickly pulled of the highway and found a gas station. After he relieved himself he said “ I’m sorry for swearing dad.” I said “that’s ok sometimes you just can’t help it” and “don’t tell your mother”.
Of all the things I see people do on a day to day bases swearing to me seems to be a slight imposition at best.
So do yourself a favor and let the f-bomb slip once and a while, It just might make you smile. Or at least get the driver to pull over so you can pee.
Story #2 Gasp I said the F word and I am a Mom does that make me a bad Mom?
Gasp......yes I have used the f word.... A Mom that has used the f word ... outrageous right! I hire and work with people that are coming off the street and this word has become part of my life.... so if you are asking yourself why would I want to write about this that is why and I find it very intriguing? No other word drives as much feeling as this word. Feelings of power, regret, embarrassment, love, and rage, I could go on and on. I find it incredibly interesting how one word can be so powerful and can work its way into every life, every sentence, in some people’s cases. I know a guy I call “swears a lot” he fits the f word into every single sentence. No one can hide from this word. You may not say it but you will hear it and feel it. And I would be willing to bet not a single person above the age of 30 has not used it at least once outside of its Webster meaning. In fact I wonder if it’s in the dictionary ... Hold on it am going to go check. Be back in a minute..... yes yes it’s in the dictionary.
How does one word worm its way into world this way. It’s because we make such a big deal out of it. And honestly it really does at times feel so good to say it. We can use the word fudge in place of the f word. And many who claim they do not use the f word use the fudge word but they use it with the same intention and meaning. Fudge that hurt. Fudge this fudge that. I would like to argue that the fudge using person is now swearing. My get around the swearing rule, is farfignewton. Now that is a great replacement. But its intention is the same but yet now I am an all good superhero that does not say “naughty” words. Naughty words... that is funny isn’t it just hearing it, “Naughty word”... In some way’s using words gives us a sense of freedom, as sense of life gone a little crazy. Life is short we all need to go a bit crazy sometimes or as they say dance in the rain, be a bit naughty, and yes say the farfignewton word. Say farfingnewton out loud and mean it!!! I do every day.
I need a new replacement word I feel as if I have worn out fargingnewton HMMM.... suggestions?
