    I went with "Who?" just because it was there.

    Otherwise, I don't give a shit. You can choose to respond to the person, or you can choose not to. I'll likely respond to you in the manner you're posting, however...

    I do not curse at work or in front of my children. This place is my outlet. Some days my potty mouth is ready to EXPLODE like a _______________________(fill in the blank)

    I'm with Chanel. While I do sometimes swear at home, I don't go for the gratuitous swearing I do on this board. I get a kick out it...

    But then later, I feel guilty because I know it doesn't become a Christian.

    All the same, it's fucking fun!

    next Lent (isn't that like almost a year away?) I may give it up.

    When you go to heaven do you think you will still get a kick out of swearing?

    I don't really have a problem with it, but I do tend to agree with my father who said, "Profanity is how the uneducated express their thoughts."

    There absolutely no judgement in his tone or thought when he said it. He just believed that education provided a person with the ability to analyze and describe. Those who surrender to frustration and rage usually do so at the expense of thinking.

    When a guy stops thinking, he starts cussing. Don't agree? Hit your thumb with a hammer and see what you say.

    By the by, I never heard my father cuss one time in my life. Not once. I did witness him hit his thumb with a hammer. I do not share his restraint. I have two vocabularies that seem to run parallel in me and I can tell how well I'm thinking by what is coming out of my mouth.
