The Lovely Letter F

Is it just me or can you too throw around the F word at any given time and have frequently been known to say, "Motherfucker is my favorite word." It just has a nice ring to it. I can't help it. It's vulgar, crass, and sounds unintelligent. Sometimes though it's the only word that will do. Let's hear everyone yell, "Oh that poor child she's raising. What a foul mouthed pig she must be."

I do have to say that I draw the line at one usage of it. Fuck You. I hate it. I can say motherfucking this, what the fuck, mother fucking that, but 'Fuck You', which seems to always scream in all caps even when said in a whisper, just gets me. When someone says it to me something in me shuts down. Hostility arises. Distance is brought up and I can no longer communicate with that individual. They temporarily cease to exist. Maybe it's because I only use that phrase when I'm so angry that I can't think straight and I want to really be mean. I just can't seem to throw that version of 'fuck' around lightly. It hurts to hear it.

So is it just me that feels this way? I sound like Andy Rooney here. Next thing you know I'll be talking about carrots and how closely related they are to shoes being too tight and how that really sticks in my craw.

    I find that in the case of an injury, a good solid "motherf*er" somehow expreses my pain perfectly. Weird but true.

  2. There is simply no appropriate way to respond to "F* you" other than shutting down. It's a total conversation killer. I guess that's the point. I don't usually swear much, but a good Damn usually gets the point across for me.

    I am ashamed to say it but I also find satisfaction in using the F word when I am angry. I don't know why but I guess it is because sometimes the F word just sums up my anger. Problem is I have a child now so I am trying to clean up my language.
