I admit that my vocabulary tends to run towards the slightly profane. Or very profane, if you factor in that I spend most of my time with two young, impressionable children. My kids are well versed in the world of trucker talk. The two year old has been known to throw down a toy with frustration and yell out 'damnit!' He once, to my profound embarrassment, announced his departure from a game with his sister by saying, 'fuck it.'
The six year old positively revels in learning a new obscenity with which to impress her friends. So much so, that last week as some overgrown SUV tried to t-bone our little Dodge Neon at an intersection on the icy roads, I apparently let loose with a word that not even my little pitcher had heard before and she was more excited to hear the new cuss word than worried about becoming a grease stain on the crossroads. I won't tell you what the word was, but I will say it started with a C and rhymes with punt.
bad word. Is is used to invalidate women's voices. It is used against men to unfavorably compare them to women. Do not use this word. It is forbidden.
"Yes. Okay, now, listen. I am going to-"
"Does that mean I can say 'bitch' now too?"
