Has anybody noticed that I don't cuss a whole lot on this hyar blog?
What's THAT about?
Face it, most of you wouldn't know me if I passed you in the street wearing a neon bra and leather underwear while marching with the flame-thrower afficinados of America club in the Beltane parade, so why should I worry if you happened to find out that, in the meat world, I curse like a drunken sailor getting a scrotum tattoo?
Have I developed "sensitivity" at long last?
It seems as though a liberal application of dirty words would be the cool thing to do, because I've seen some blogs by younger people and manohmanohMAN are there curse words! The "B" word is an endearment, the "F" work is a multipupose space-filler, and the "S" word is used to describe a state of mind or digestive byproduct or possessions. They spit them out like a mouthful of watermelon seeds on the fourth of July (like that one? Huh?) and don't seem to remark on any bitter aftertaste. Cussing = cool to people under 25, or so I'm led to believe.
Which makes me fee so uncool NOT using 4-letter words, but can't bring myself to type them, even if they're what I really mean and would say if I was talking to you in person and would add a little peppah to the writing.
In some ways this makes me feel like that maiden Aunt who calls a couch a davenport or the bathroom a "necessary." I'm one step away from tatting doiles for kitty condos and smelling of mothballs and dentures!
Dagnabbit all to heck.
I don't even like the word "piss."
One of my brothers can't stand the word "packet."
Personally, I do not like the four-letter slang for the girlie area that rhymes with "punt." I would go so far as to say I HATE this word. Like "whore," it seems to me one of the worst things you can call a woman.
Got any words you just don't care for? Something that makes you feel squicky inside when you say them or hear someone else say them? Feel free to allude to them in the comments, or go ahead and type them right out for the rest of us to ponder over.
This has to be short today - I'm already behind and have to leave early to go to a meeting at the bank (with a banker and everything! Because we sold our house and have M-O-N-E-Y and need to NOT spend it on frivolities like neon bras and flame throwers!) and have to get something to someone that I told them they have today and I'm nowhere NEAR getting that done, PLUS I have a meeting in 15 minutes that I'm not ready for.
