After a few comments from Kevin over the years about my language and its tendency to veer towards longshoreman I have decided to meet the challenge head-on. For the last twelve days of this year I am going to abstain from swearing. Just quit cold-turkey. Cold, f-ing, turkey.
Now this isn't about to become a permanent change. I am a beliver that a vocabulary peppered with the occasional obscenity is a necessary and beautiful thing. But I do agree that I can lean on it a little too much especially when I am worn-out which seems to be the norm these past weeks.
Wish me luck!
Oh, and by the way I don't think either "hell" or references to "Jesus Christ" are swear words.
