Truth - Words To Swear By

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Ever hear someone just swear all of the time?  Every other word is F this and F that.  Sailor mouths.  Truck driver mouths.  Hey, stereotypes don't just magically appear. It's rampant, especially on the net.

They say swearing shows a lack of intelligence. I don't know about that completely. I'm sure very smart people swear often, and are effective at it (i.e. me damn it).  What it does show and I truly believe this, is a lack of judgement or reason based on condition. I know this all too well, because I do it.  It takes one to know one.  At least at least at least I'm aware of my shortcomings.  That is you are swearing as a reaction rather than a thought out response.

When I swear, unless I am very angry, I know that I should not (insert organ music because I used the word should).  Instead of saying that was f'n great, it would be more appropriate, fun, enlightening to say that was very great, or super great...or any other adjective that would apply.  Again, and I've said it a million zillion hundred times, words matter.

For someone who does not speak that well, so I've been told, I strive to use compelling words whenever possible.  It ain't easy. The language of a community helps to escalate or enrich the lives of those who participate in it. Slang or the vernacular of cussing and swearing will lead to the degradation of the language.  You then start having new words, swearing and cussing becomes so common place that they becomes adjectives in their own right.

Have you ever been around kids, when an adult swears? Another adult will always say "that's OK, they've heard it before" or "They have to learn sometime".  No, not really.  That's a cop out and self justification.

Think about it. Try to not swear in public at least or online so that you can spread words that matter.  Enrich the culture, don't kill it. Especially now when the world is falling apart.  I will try.

[Waiting to see how many responses I will get that have swear words - creativity be damned]

  1. Gosh darn it all! I totally agree! In fact, I am blown away by what I see in social media-is that REALLY how people want to present themselves? Sure, a curse word is good for emphasis every once in a while but for the most part, it's a cop out on the English Language which is a thing of great beauty!
