Don't Curse Like a Sailor In Me Boat

Do you know that old saying…goes something like this…An Englishman and an American row a boat across the river. By the time they reach the opposite shore they both have an English accent. Accents can have a temporary “rub off” affect. Have I ever mentioned how much the people in the UK curse? I mean it is like the F bomb going off every one - two seconds. Imagine if you will, sweet little me on the phone (rowing my preverbal boat) with my cousin for an hour.

And then…

“Snow White what the Bloody H are you doing? Wipe up that F’en paint up off the F’en floor and get cleaned up.”

No, I didn’t really say that but I could almost feel the words coming out. Love my rels but thank goodness we didn’t talk for more than an hour.

After being on the phone with ANY of her family (Most are in the TN/AL area, but her bros live in Michigan and Wash.) - even if it's a short call - my mom picks up some strange southern accent.

I am the same way with swearing - I have a bad potty mouth anyway, but I can usually control it unless I'm around someone else who swears a lot.
