Curse word renaissance

If you’re like me, you’ve picked up some pretty salty language in your time. In fact, I’ll bet by now, you’ve chosen your favourites and settled into them pretty nicely. But what about the other curse words you learned along the way? The ones you threw around from time to time back in the day, but which you haven’t even thought about in years? Don’t you think it might be time to bring a few of the old cusses back into the rotation?

Today, for example, I was out on my lunch break and I saw a dude running around in shorts. Big old khaki shorts in the middle of November, like a meatheaded undergrad heading to the park to get some quality hacky sack time between classes. “Look at that dipshit,” I thought to myself.

And then I thought “Wow, dipshit! That’s been a while, hasn’t it?” Looking back, in fact, I don’t think I’d called a guy a dipshit since high school. And let me tell you, it’s amazing how a random bit of vulgarity can take you back.

If you’re looking for a weekend project, why not make a list of all your swear words and see if you can dig one up that you haven’t dropped in a while? You’ll be glad you did!
