I came to this realization while we were walking from the car to babies r us and Andrew was dropping some f-bombs.... I mean we just sort of use these words in normal speech, we're not being malicious or mean spirited. Furthermore, we are not rough... I would like to think that we are quite proper in fact. But it dawned on me... we are outside of babies-r-us.... swearing in this setting is just wrong.... oh shit what if we swear in front of our children....we need to kick this habit asap.
So now am I wondering how easy this will be. It's not like we are addicted to swearing (I hope)... it's just that we don't even notice that we are doing it anymore... in short... we have become immune.
I don't think that we need to go to drastic measures... I mean if I stub my toe or walk into a wall, which I have been know to do these days, then I feel that I have a right to utter a quick curse. I am talking about the regular conversations that we have and needlessly drop a few f-bombs.
Are we alone in this? Do you swear out of habit and if you have children how did you stop (assuming you stopped)? I really cannot stand hearing a parent swear in front of their young child. I refuse to be that parent.
