'S' is for Shit
I just got in 'shit' from my Mother over this. In her cool tone (I knew something was heading my way) she said, 'I was so surprised to see that post.'. I said, 'What post?' (knowing full well which one she was referring to.) 'The post with that word.', she emphasized. Oh boy, I thought, I'm in big ka-ka now. I tried to explain to her that no other word was as effective as 'fuck' for my feelings about the situation. She, in her very motherly way, stated that I could have used another word to convey my frustration. Have I told you that I will soon be 50? Have I also told you that I hate to be censored? Especially by a scrabble champion. It is true what 'they' say: Once a Mother always a Mother.
