If you had visited this site just minutes ago, you would have seen a post with a “newly-minted” euphemism. I thought it was my word. Then I looked it up and though it’s not in any conventional dictionary, it is in a “street” dictionary and by their definition it’s more offensive than the word I was trying to replace. A little bit of vulgarity is OK by me, but this one was particularly bad. So here is a revised version of the post.
Faithful Reader doesn’t like it when I swear too much and he has indicated that he might prefer euphemisms. Euphemisms are not as much fun, and I’m bored with “eff” and “freak” and “frig.” I would do almost anything for him, though, so I’ll try to use them occasionally for his sake.
Here’s an example of how I might use them:
Can you believe that the effers at the furniture store tried to tell us that they don’t have a freaking money-back guarantee when their own frigging receipt clearly states that they do?
