It's morning already?
In fact, yesterday, I heard my twins cuss in front of me for the first time ever. (They are 16.) My daughter was frustrated because I was rushing her to get to practice, and she said sh*+. Then she just about cried realizing she'd said it in front of me! She apologized profusely. Later, my son told her to quit slamming the d*mn door. He didn't apologize!
I guess those words are pretty tame compared to what I hear from some teenagers. At least my daughter was mortified that she said it in front of me. Of course, when I was their age, I'm sure I said those two words and many more, just not in front of my parents, especially my dad. Oh, I hate to think what would have happened if I said that in front of my dad. In fact, I remember saying "We're gonna beat their butts" in front of my dad when I was in fifth grade. I was talking about our football team beating our opponent. He came unglued over the word "butt" from a fifth graders. Needless to say, even into adulthood, I was careful with my language in front of him.
This was a fun trip down memory lane.
