I use the “eff” word, the “ess” word, the “dee” word (with our without the “gee” word). I use the “a” word, the “bee” word, the “em-eff”word, and a slew of others. I use them all and I HATE IT!
It bugs the bejeezus out of me. I’m a beepin’ wordsmith. I should be able to string together an effin’ sentence without relying on, contortionism, crudity, bodily functions, or bodily parts best examined by proctologists, gynecologists, or other ologists of the nether regions!
One would think, with all the time and effort I’ve devoted to conquering this “irritant,” it would take more than one little trigger before vile profanity gushes forth from my mouth as I watch aghast. Alas, no.
I don’t know why swearing bothers me. It just does. I wish I didn’t swear. But I do.
Once upon a time I didn’t swear. My intro into language didn’t consist of “Ma” “Da” and the “eff” word. Yet somewhere along the line I picked up the habit and it stuck.
Sadly, my technological forays into cyberspace haven’t helped.
Can you honestly say (after exerting hours, days, weeks, or months to solve some technological issue), when the Promised Land is but a step away and you accidentally hit the delete button, forget to save, do (or don’t do) some other small thing, a simple “Oh oops,” “I erred,” “Silly me,” or even “Back to the drawing board” will do?
Sometimes the swearing goes into remission. I begin hoping I’m cured. Inevitably I’m proven wrong. The pressure used to squash, subdue, or contain the profanity is released. A volcanic eruption of cuss words spews forth as a tsunami of profanity surges forward with a vengeance.
So whether I’m a stuffy prude stuck with a sailor’s mouth run amuck, a control freak who’s irritated because she can’t control her tongue or something else, I know not.
I realize this doesn’t warrant a 12-step program. However, if you’ve managed to tame the potty-mouth beast (sorry gang, that just doesn’t carry the “oomph” of the alphabet words), inquiring minds want to know your secret!
