Some people learn how to use their indoor voices early.

Some people forget.

Or maybe, some people use some language that's slightly more colorful than is appropriate for a guest to use. And maybe the host makes polite suggestions that some people should be aware that there are children present, and please to stop swearing like a sailor. And perhaps it takes twelve hours for that to sink in.

Golly.

What's worse is that I just did the math again: 36 hours.


Frack.

Heh, don't worry about it

Honestly, I don't expect people who grew up in normal households to have a curseword-switch like I do. And I'm more anal and conservative about language around kids than most people (ask Wes).

Besides, rog lived with the kids for a year and everytime I said anything about his language he'd insist that neither "damn" nor "hell" were swearwords. So he was probably watching that game and laughing his ass off.

I'm not so sure that I grew up in a normal household - there are quite a few words I won't say in front of my folks, including "damn", "Hell", and "God" - unless I'm talking about God damning somebody to Hell. And we don't often really discuss that.

You must mean his "elbow." Children do read LiveJournal, you know. Please try to think of the children!

Hee. Thank you, I needed a laugh today.

Also, my boss printed out your email and gave it to me at the service. I wish I'd had it before, it was beautiful. I am going to email you back instead of communicating to you via Dave's comments. Give me a day or two but know that it meant so much to me I will never be able to articulate.
