My son came home today with those dreaded words: "Mom, you are not going to be happy to hear this." He says that, in his invisible friend voice, whenever he's gotten in trouble at school.
What was the offense this time? When he noticed that he'd forgotten to put his pencils in his locker, he said, "Damn it!"
And let us be clear: I have no idea at all as to where he could possibly have heard that sort of language. None! It's an honest mystery to me. We're all clean-spoken folk here, by gum!
Ahem. Darn big-eared kid.
