You know it's bad when I bring out the Mother....

I have to admit, I have somewhat of a potty mouth IRL(although I try to really refrain from cussing on my blog). But to be fair, most of the words I use on a semi regular basis aren't really very bad words. Really, they're not...if you classify the different cuss words into levels of bad and very bad.

My bad list:
crap, damn, hell,, those are the only ones I must use, since I can't think of any more right now.

My Very Bad list: (Some of these I won't ever use because I have aversions to them)

the F word. I use it way too much, but I really try not to use it around my kids, and they have yet to pick it up so I must be doing something right.

any word with vulgar reference to woman parts, I hate hearing those words and you would very rarely hear me say anything close to any of those.

And I'm sure there are more, but my ultimate cuss word is the Mother Fuc#^r. Really, that's as bad as it gets with me. And if you hear it coming out of my mouth it's because something really, really bad has happened, or something hurt so bad that any other words just fail to express the enormity of the situation.

Today I had to pull out the Mo Fo card. I think that's when I realized all of this. I got a paper cut (typical job hazard) way up under my I think I know why denailing and other things were used to torture people. I've had my fair share of paper cuts over the years, but at this point I think this is the absolute worst one I've ever gotten, and in the worst place. I think the words were out of my mouth before I even realized it, and I almost never cuss that bad. So I figured out that is has to be some gigantic deal for me to pull out the mother f-er word. (see, I can't even do it for purposes of literature..... pfh, who am I kidding, literature?)


  1. I try sooooo hard not to swear now that our son is learning to repeat everything he hears - I don't think I realized how bad my "potty mouth" was until I became a mother. Still when I almost knocked the tv over, a month ago, my son learned a choice word indeed. :P

  2. Paper cuts are the WORSST...and definitely worthy of breaking out the Mother F word!

  3. Whew....that must have been a bad one. I can't recall the last time I've said MFer. I really try to not use the F word, either!!!

  4. I love to swear (it's so theraputic!), but I don't anymore. Unless I'm under severe stress, like a paper cut under the nail (ow!). My office has been subjected to my unprofessional mouth on several occassions.

  5. LOL at having to pull out the MoFo card!

    Sorry you hurt yourself - paper cuts suck!

    But I'm with Mamasphere - I find swearing therapeutic.

    In fact, today on the phone I told my friend I love a good f@)k - and then giggled hilariously when I realized what I had said (we were actually discussing swearing, and swearing around kids, parents, etc.)

    I hope it feels better soon!

  6. Ouch! I got one recently just on my finger and I couldn't control what came out of my mouth!
