Mom - you know that the bus driver doesn't care if we swear. You know what my favorite response to something when they say something stupid is? You know, like when I say something & than a few seconds later he says it like I DIDN'T just say it? I say "No shit sherlock!" It's my new favorite saying.
You're getting you're mom's sarcastic genes kiddo!
Mom - what was your favorite cussword saying?
You know that you're grandparents weren't (and still aren't) ok with us swearing. If we said a word that resembled a swear word within a 5 mile radius of your grandma that magic backhand of hers with knock us on the ground before we'd ever see it coming. Couldn't say stupid or dumb or sucks or dang either. She said they were all the same. So we had our own little silly substitute words that we all used that I can't remember now. Our school had population 200 for 7th-12th grade. So everyone in town and all the school faculty knew your grandparents on a first name basis and would call them directly if they caught us swearing or breaking a rule.
But what about with Aunty Shorty? You said you could cuss up a storm around her!
Yes, honey, we would. It was our way of getting them all out at once, since we couldn't use them 95% of the rest of the time.
Why couldn't you use them mom?
Why don't you call your grandmother? She'd love to explain it to you...
