My Foul Mouth

I curse. A lot. I know you're thinking what's the big deal? Everyone curses. But I never used to be this way. Actually, I was the total opposite when I was younger. I never cursed. It was untoward. It was vulgar. And I was definitely not those things. (Not sure about now though.) I didn't even say the s-word. Yes, I was a weirdo.

I remember back in college when my male friends cursed up a storm. I actually corrected them. I would say, "Instead of saying sh%t, say shoot" or "use the word fudge rather than the f-word." I can't believe they didn't dump me right then and there. They (God love them) were really patient with me and actually humored me some of the time. Those beautiful bastards. If I were them, I'd slap myself.

Then after college, I worked in a male-dominated field and was surrounded by men every day. That was when my innocent mind was corrupted. I tried not to succumb and didn't even start picking it up right away. It was after hearing "f&#k this" and "f$% that" for a year that I finally took on the habit.

Honestly, I'm really not that bad. But once in a while, cursing feels f%$king good. I got a lot of pent up anger in me, and I need to let it out. Or someone will get hurt. My foul mouth saves lives, people!

I have to say Tara's very good around my girls. She actually catches other people. And honestly since mostly I'm around my girls, I haven't heard Tara really go at it.

Tara said...

Yeah, I am good like that. ;)

I just turned 15 and considered that old enough to curse. I sorta think it's fun!(Try not to curse around your mom!)
Love your blog!

HAHAHA, I love your image for this one. :) I too, lived with guys in college and they effectively corrupted me. Every once in a while though, f--k is the only word that will do. It's so versatile- noun, verb, adjective... Hehehe.You're very well-behaved on the blog though!

I am really trying to cut back on the swearing now that I have a kid.

So far, it isn't f#@*ing working.

Tara said...

Holy crap! Thanks for the comments, you fellow foul mouths! Haha.

Missy May--As a responsible adult, I should tell you that cursing is very very bad. As your fellow blogger, I'd say no one gives a shit. Curse away.

Malou--Thanks! I'm pretty f%&king funny, aren't I?

txting--I totally agree. The f-word just adds a little something something. Very versatile indeed.

Libby--Oh well! Haha.
