Episodes from the life of a middle-aged Dad
I find swearing in Zulu very therapeutic. Not only can I use some fairly ... er ... flowery verbiage to express myself, but bystanders have no idea (other than my tone of voice, facial expressions and body language) what I'm talking about.It's probably safer that way ...;-)
Check out Firefly for some most creative Mandarin curses...
I find that, while it's probably not as cathartic, shouting "Son of a motherless goat!" helps.And if that doesn't work, well, my favorite kid-friendly epithet is one my nephews introduced me to:Got dandruff some of it itches!You have to say it fast enough....Then you'll get it.
there are days....
No, I very much want the object of my frustration to understand me.
I can ask for beer in 5 languages, and swear pretty well in Russian. It has come in handy.
Ever tried "hval blast"? It's an old whaling term meaning "there she blows". Properly delivered it can be very therapeutic.
Please post as you learn ~ I imagine it would be a useful tool for many.
