Another Monday morning and it's a beautiful day here. I went for a walk in the park this morning while it was still cool, and that was nice. I really wanted to go for a bicycle ride, but it was a little too windy. I like to ride in 10 mph of wind or less. Over 10 mph and I just don't enjoy it that much. I do want the benefit of the exercise of riding a bike, but I like to really enjoy the scenery and the experience too. This morning the winds are at 15 mph. Saturday morning I rode 20 miles and last night I rode 13 miles. It was great. I am listening to a James Patterson book and it's pretty good. Has a little bit too much foul language in it for my taste, but I'm trying to ignore that. And I probably won't read another one of his books because of it. It's hard to find a good, clean book these days. For some reason, authors seem to think foul language adds to the book, I guess, maybe makes it seem more real life or something. I don't know, but I just hate it. It's offensive to me. I wonder, why do people feel the need to use bad language anyway? What's the point? Maybe it's just a habit they picked up when they were young and thought it was cool??? Maybe they still think it's cool. I don't know... I guess if they like it, it's their business. It's just words afterall. --How the heck did I get on that subject anyway?...... Guess I'll go now.

--How the heck did I get on that subject anyway? HAHAHAHA you just used a " cuss" word... Of course thats an "acceptable" cuss word. Any way, I know what you mean , it is offensive. I think of the little christian song we usta sing, "be careful little ears what you hear" I'm glad you wont be listening to anymore of his books, the more people buy the more he thinks people like 'em and the more he writes. Any-how, have a great day!

'Heck' is a cuss word? Oh dear. Well, sorry if I offended anyone.

Glenda, saved by grace said...

uh yeah...I'm surprised you did'nt know that!
From the online dictionary...
n : a euphemism for `hell'; "Oh what the heck"
heck ( P ) Pronunciation Key (hk)
Used as a mild oath.

n. Slang
Used as an intensive: had a heck of a lot of money; was crowded as heck
[Alteration of hell.]
But , no, I'm not offended, I hear lots worse on TV

I see, you're right. I guess you have just presented me with the perfect example of why I should keep my big mouth shut and not complain of what others do. Cussing may not be a big problem for me (mmmm, or is it?), but I sure have other sins that are BIG problems for me.

I don't really even know if cussing is a SIN. I just don't particularily like it myself. That's just MY preference. I guess it kind-of gets into the same area as someone wearing strong perfume that offends someone else, or something like that.

Goodness, I don't know. Who am I to say?
