What's the word for when you're brushing your teeth and you accidentally slam your brush into your gums causing excruciating pain? There has to be a word for that, because I seem to do it all the time. And after I did it this week it occurred to me that I really need to stop swearing so much. The problem is that to just quit doing something, you really need something else to fill the void. So I need new swear words. I don't mean 'drat' or 'gee whiz' or 'Jiminy Nutbars'! (which is TC's current exclamation.) (Man, my kids are weird.) I need something that I will actually use and stick with.
Today I'm trying out, "Newman!" in place of my favorite four letter word. We'll see how it goes.
