Notes from the Small Pond: Swearing
No one's ever asked me, but if anyone did, and they were serious, I'd answer the way my grandpa answered me when I asked him when I was 5 years old in 1970:
"Why do you swear, Grandpa?"
"Why do you swear and say 'God-Oh-Friday' all the time?"
"Only when I'm mad."
