This morning, my wife and I were sitting in a restaurant next to four military dudes peppering their loud conversation with explosive expletives. My wife asked me if it reminded me of being in the navy.
No, I said, when I was in, we were a bit more strategic in our use of cursing. If you use the “F” word as a noun, verb, and adjective, it loses its potency a bit.
Unless you’re a character in a Roddy Doyle novel. That man is a master.
