Coming over from French as my native language, I’m confused by how much the meaningof “shit” can change.
If something is shit, it’s bad. But if it’s the shit, it’s great.
My shit is neutral to good but your shit neutral to bad.
My shit is property I want to keep but sometimes I don’t want to own my shit.
I want you to give a shit but I’m not gonna take any more shit.
It’s good to get shit done but bad to start shit up. You wanna make shit happen but not cause shit to happen.
You don’t want to be surrounded by people who are full of shit but you don’t want them to be shitless either.
You want to know your shit but you shouldn’t talk shit and you don’t want to have to look at this shit, hear this shit or have you nose rubbed in it. You can’t touch this shit and eating shit is something you wish only to people you hate; That would really bring a shit-eating grin to your face.
It’s a good thing to have your shit together and you certainly don’t want to lose your shit or you might be in deep shit.
I hardly ever use the word though.
