Lowering the tone

My ma read my blog last night. With me in the same room. That's really awkward, sort of like being there when your teacher marks your essay and you can see every grimace and raised eyebrow.  I found myself getting dead nervous and hoping desperately I hadn't mentioned anything about anyone shagging anyone (I haven't).

Braced for her comments on my writing (which she hasn't seen in many years, probably since I was at school) I was both relieved and amused to hear: 'Very funny dear. I do wish you'd remove the f-words. It does lower the tone'.

I can't help swearing.  I like it. I don't think there's anything wrong with a fuck word or even a cunt every now and again. I really don't. If I want to hurt someone's feelings or make a point I usually find swear words diminish and really cutting adjectives take their place.

But then again, I don't want to offend for the sake of it. Oh fuck it.

Sorry mum.
