Ah well

Profanity sure is an easy habit to fall into. I occasionally lets a word or two slip out when I get really mad. I blame my Dad for that. Some of the folks around here cuss every second word. I'm not sure what they have left to say when they get mad. I have a secret weapon to keep my vocabulary on the straight and narrow: Theresa. She gives me grief for saying "heck" or "darn" because she says they just remind people of the words they're replacing. She loves me despite my flaws so I'm happy to watch my tongue. Besides, though I don't consider myself an easy person to offend, I know that profanity has always been about deliberately offending people. Many of them deserve it, perhaps, but I aspire to be a better than that. It's something to shoot for anyway.

Don't feel too bad about it Lynsay. At least you try. Not everyone does.

If we're confessing our cussing sins, I should point out that I'm a Navy Brat, and the term Swearing Like a Sailor is true. I learned it all from my Dad and his Navy buddies, but I can't blame it all on them. I could choose not to use the words, and 95% of the time, I'm good about it, but if you ever make me mad, be prepared to hear the worst!

I'm sure the Navy is pretty bad, GND, but coming in second has got to be an all-girl Catholic High School! That's where I learned a lot of my best swear words. My brake has always been my mother. While I could let loose around my father (he was a cop and was used to it!), my mother hated cuss words and NEVER used them. Even now, when I'm closing in on 50 years old, if something slips while talking to her, I get a reprimand!

mhm, I cuss a bit. I feel bad about doing it but...still do it. I do have some rules I follow. #1: NO CURSING IN SCHOOL!!!! #2 No cursing in front of adults who are not my parents. #3 No cursing AT someone...in front of them.

Yeah :oops:

Updating the Tree? I think I might die of the excitement. I love having the family trees! <3 <3

If we are confessing cussing.. whew man I am bad for it... I try not to when I am in public.. like today I said "Son of a Biscuit" when I tried to break my hand... I hit my hand on a bed in a furniture store... Im getting a new bed! :D
I try to not cuss.. but sometimes it doesn't work that well.. Im trying to cut down on my cussing... But its a work in progress!!
