"Say dammit, Daddy," A Preschooler's Knows When To Swear

I'm only sort of late getting our Christmas tree up. Considering all what's happening, it's not bad.

I get the tree out of the box and start to put it together. And drop something. My four-year-old, Beta-chan, looks up and says "Say dammit, Daddy." Except it's "dannit" so I'm not quite sure what she means. I give her an enquiringly look and she says, "You dropped it, so say 'dannit.'"

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