Did I Say That Out Loud?

ToT-Button

Okay.  True confessions.  

I'll admit it:  I have no problem whatsoever with . . . profanity.

(Sorry Mom.)

I think a well-placed . . . expletive . . . can add just the right emphasis and level of meaning.  Y'know?  Plus.  Well.  Swearing (out loud) can help diffuse an otherwise frustrating situation.

That said, there's a time and a place for swearing.  And when it's NOT the time or the place, here are my favorite substitutes:

  1. CRAP.  As in . . . Full of.
  2. FREAKIN'.  As in . . . How can it take so freakin' long?
  3. DANG.  As in . . . Wow! Can you freakin' believe that? Holy-Moley!
  4. RATS.  As in . . . Oh, DANG! I cannot freakin' believe that!
  5. HOKEY-PETE.  As in . . . Hokey-PETE!  Are you freakin' kidding me?
  6. POOP.  As in . . . I really need to get my POOP-in-a-GROUP!
  7. JERK-WAD.  As in . . . That jerk-wad!  He just cut me off!
  8. SON-OF-A-GUN.  As in . . . It hurt like a SONofaGUN!
  9. TICKED.  As in . . . I am SO ticked off right now.
  10. HOLY-MOLEY.  As in . . . Holy-Moley!  That's some serious crap!

How about YOU?  What do you say . . . when you can't say what you'd really like to say?
