I grew up on a farm where my Mother's strongest words were "gee willickers"
and my Dad's were "gosh darn it." My brothers and I knew exactly what those
words meant. Like Wade, I spent some time in the Navy, where I learned how
colorful our language could be. Do I swear in the workplace? Only when
necessary and often when I'm working in Word.

I am, however, envious of Wade....I can only swear in one language.

without a destination, I figured, than to cross the wrong threshold each
day." (Sy Safransky)
