I don't have a problem with "the B word" really, it's just the over use of it for agressive women. That's why I decided to start saying "abbrasive". I like agressive women- more power to them! But, I don't care for "see you next tuesdays."
I've been watching "denise richards- it's complicated" and everytime she swears she donates a pair of shoes to goodwill. Maybe I should do something like that. withhold chocolate from myself? I'm not in to shoes.
my mom was telling me how some of the teachers get really upset when kids say "pimp." They find it really offensive. A guy in my class in high school got in big trouble for calling benjamine franklin a pimp. My mom tried to explain how to kids now it's not really a bad thing. She also had to explain 69 to another teacher who didn't know why it made the kids laugh.
