I don’t think it comes as any surprise to regular readers when I confess that I sometimes use curse words. (The horror!) Some people might consider this a moral failing or character defect, but I prefer to believe it’s not. After all, they’re just words, right?

Today I’m over at Alpha Mom trying to unravel modeling appropriate language behavior for my kids, now that swearing isn’t exactly off-limits, but it’s not necessarily awesome to hear coming from my teenagers’ mouths, either.


  1. Little Bird

    My stepsister and I used to hold insult wars. The first one to laugh lost. And yes, the insults were positively brimming with expletives! My mother overheard us once, and offered an insult that had us laughing so hard we nearly wet ourselves. We were 17.

  2. Mary K. in Rockport

    I stand exactly where you stand when it comes to what, where and when those words and phrases may, or may not, be used.

  3. Laurel

    This has nothing to do with anything, but have you read or do you intend to read THE ROSIE PROJECT by Graeme Simsion? As I read it I wondered if you would be able to enjoy. Have a great day.
