You Kiss Your Mother With That Mouth?

The cursing is driving me insane. I used to have a potty mouth. Go through the archives and you will see myriad and sundry examples of this. Start from the beginning and stop around last April or May. I had already started lessening the frequency by that point, but it's trickled almost to a stop in the last few months. Trust and believe it's been a conscious and difficult effort.

Everywhere I go from work (unprofessional much?) to my blog, I'm surrounded by people who curse like sailors. It makes me really uncomfortable. It's a lot harder not to curse when everyone around you is dropping f-bombs and everything else. People can say and do whatever they want on their own blogs. You know I don't regulate people's blog content and get heated when people try to do that on mine. But when you're going to someone else's house, you don't put your feet on the furniture. So I'm going to ask you to stop cursing in my comments. You are all very colorful people and I love that. Don't be less expressive. But the cursing... I need to stop. I'd rather not cringe on my own blog. Thanks for your help.

I've tried to cut down on the sailor vernacular myself, but I come from a family of cussologists, so it's awfully though. I do try to keep my comments clean here, because I know it irks your life, LOL

I've tried to stop cursing and it's very hard. You're right about the company you keep. You've given me pause for thought.

Oh, you know what I hate more than cursing? All the pseudo curses - freakin', gd, etc. If you're gonna do it - just do it.

But that's me! :)
