So, I should probably address the topic of cussing here at my blog.
As you have probably noticed, I feel no qualms about using most of those words that are deemed offensive. It's how the thought processes work inside my brain and often helps me better express what I'm feeling.
That said, I realize that I probably offend some of you. Feel free to stop reading if it's more than you feel comfortable with, because I don't foresee any changes to my lexicon in the near future.
In case anyone's wondering, I do not cuss in front of my children, although I will drop a few under my breath on occasion. After all, I am the parent who once dropped the f-bomb in front of Ellie's preschool class when she was three. In my defense, however, one of the little monsters had just viciously kicked me and I said it quietly.
I do use some colorful expressions, including "Well, [name of jerk] can stand in line to kiss my big white ass." Elegant tried using that one once when she was four and I have since made a point to not say things like that in front of the girls.
Nor do I cuss in front of coworkers, neighbors, teachers, and the general populace. I was raised right, even if I don't always reflect that upbringing.
When I'm talking with just Pete, I cuss. A lot. I don't know why this is, but I do. Especially when I'm angry, which was a real whole lot last week.
Anyhoo, I just thought I'd address this. No one's complained, but I've had a large increase in readership recently and, as I was checking out the new people's blogs, I realized that there are a lot of church-goin' folks reading my stuff. I have no idea why, as I'm pretty sure I'm not on Joel Osteen's approved blogs list. So I figured I'd toss out this public service announcement now.
You've been warned. :-)
