As children, I NEVER heard Mary’s mother swear. Ever.
My mother would curse under her breath and hold a looooooonnnnnggggg F, before muttering the -uck. It always made me smile. Still does.
Mary is very good about her swearing. She is very childproof and is mindful of her company when using swear words. Sometimes I egg her on and say, “Be angry! Swear!”
I, on the other hand, have a mouth. Swearing ALWAYS helps. I’ve been known to drop an F-bomb at a PTA meeting. And Mary ALWAYS hollers at me: “Laura, Kids!”. As if my ch\ildren have never heard it before!! As a child my mother forbid swearing, we were not allowed to even say “fart” or “crap”. So, my potty mouth has to be a direct reaction to the forbidden, a rebellion, and all my mothers’ fault as most things are!
Try it out… That long slow swear. I think it just may help!
