Bad words

October 15, 2014 Leave a comment

I was fascinated today by what words V clearly thought were inappropriate and which ones he didn’t think twice about.

Two examples:

I told him my grandmother died since I saw him last week. He responded, “Damn, damn, damn. I KNEW you were going to say that! Was she sick?”

He described a pro wrestling fight he’d seen. “It’s in the…sorry…[whispers] Hell in a Cell. [blushing] I’m sorry! That’s the name of it!”

Who knows how kids pick up their ideas of what’s acceptable language and what’s not?
