Beats the shit out of me. Reminds me of the time my mother, a good catholic, first used the word ‘fuck’. Really ticked off about something she screwed up your face and biting her lower lip she starting out with “fu-fu-fu-fu-fu-fu”. We stepped back and watched in awe as the final phoneme seemed trapped beneath years of her beliefs of propriety.
After she let it out, a visible change occurred. Her face lightened up, her posture got a little cocky, she laughed like an Edward G Robinson. She said, “That’s right, I said ‘fuck’, see. I said it”. She was beaming with a new freedom.
She was never the same. She quickly mastered a drunken sailor’s vocabulary and became quick at giving the bird.
Perhaps some people shouldn’t cross the line.
