Potty mouth

I want to make a confession. I can be a potty mouth. I'm not sure why, other than I'm a very verbal person and when I'm mad, frustrated, or in the middle of a really great story, certain words seem to add more punch than others. I'm not talking about cursing, or being verbally abusive, just uttering those slang words that seem to express what I'm feeling.....really?
 Wayne hates it when I "talk ugly".  He is always fussing at me for using expressive language.  So, I've decided that I am cleaning up my mouth.  For the next 30 days I am striking the following words from my vocabulary. They just sound ugly:
pissed off
Dang it
There are a few others that I'll leave to your imagination. Can I be expressive and sweet?  We'll see. I think I'll be fine as long as I avoid all frustrating situations.

Of course you can be sweet! "Crap" and "stupid" are my weaknesses. Good luck...I'm calling you out if I hear any potty words coming outta your mouth!

You should really just have 2 little toddlers in your house, then you can't say those things because it sounds awful when they do. :)

Okay you trash talker - it's one of the things that I love about you most. If you clean up your act, then I'll have to clean up mine and that will take a mighty big sponge! Love ya nasty girl. Lynnie
