Potty Mouth

The other day I said something about all this cr*p on our desk. Bill looked at me and said, "Kristie, your language is atrocious." I just broke out laughing. I know the 'c' word is probably not the most delicate word I could have chosen, I could have said, "Oh the horror, our desk is such a mess!" or "Oh my - look at this disorganized clutter!" I grew up shoveling horse poop, and it wasn't referred to as 'poop' by my mom, and her word was way worse than my 'c' word. I pointed out to him that when we were playing softball one time and he was in the outfield if he would fumble a play he would say 'shoot', but all that made it back to us in the infield was the 'sh' sound and the 't' sound. Another player on our church team asked what he was saying out there. That's about as close to swearing as Bill has ever gotten. We know he's really mad when he says 'dog gone it!' I on the other hand was under the impression that a GA (General Authority) had issued an address making allowances for those who work with livestock. I've had to over come and use replacement words. When I really need to vent, say I hit my thumb with the hammer (again) I will say 'fudge buckets', many times with the children my expletive is 'grrrrr'. Bill thinks maybe we should just stay away from any expletives at all, but I'm not at that point in life. But if the 'c' word grates on him this badly, then I need a replacement (for my replacement) ... any ideas?

I'll be interested to see if anyone has some good alternatives for you. It won't be me....I'm guilty of using the same word as you.

Colton used to say "Oh pickles". I wish it would have stuck, it was so cute.

I love the urinal picture of the mouth. Too funny. I don't have any great replacement words.

Have you seen the Seinfeld episode where they replace "God bless you" with "Your sooooo good looking" after someone sneezes. Maybe you could use that phrase!
