So apparently tomorrow marks the beginning of No Cuss Week.
First off, I think its bullshit that it starts on a Tuesday.
Who starts a week on TUESDAY?
If my week has to start on Monday, so does Cuss Week.
Second, if the money jar and the Dial soap sandwich my mom fed me as a child didn't work, I can't make any promises about a vague psuedo-holiday of Cuss Week.
I mean, I even try the old standby substitutes - Cheese and Crackers, Freck, Eff, Gosh Darn, Flying Monkeys - you catch my drift.
But lemme tell ya - when you just NEED to get that point across - when you just gotta tell a mother fucker how you feel - nothing really says what on your mind like a good old fashioned
And I right, or am I right?
I mean, it's kinda like using the word douche bag when trying to describe a ...well, douche bag. You use that word, and there's NO mistaking how you feel.
And swears aren't all that bad, right? I mean, some are so versatile, they can be nouns, verbs, AND adjectives.
Noun: "I gotta take a shit" or "I don't give a shit."
Adjective: "I had a shitty day" or "This is a shitty job."
Verb: "Don't bother me while I am shitting."
Now, I don't advocate cussing around young children - after all, cusses should only be used by adults, say perhaps, a right you receive when you register to vote or join the Army.
So, use this Cuss Week as you will - perhaps I will try to curb it, perhaps not.
But it's a interesting thought.
