Ah, yes. One must swear when one drops things. At least Grandma wasn't there to overhear.

Back when Dweezil was a toddler, he was very good at picking up vocabulary and using it appropriately. So we were forced to make a very concerted effort to retrain ourselves.

One day, I was carrying something upstairs, and it was precariously perched on a pile of other stuff I was carrying, and I sorta *knew* it was doing to fall. When it did, I restrained myself and managed to keep it to "golly" or something like that.

Dweezil, very helpfully, chimed in with "Gah Damit".
