Yes, I am "the one"

I have seen that you are attentive to all your readers, even those whose comments deserve to be ignored!

OKB is right, if you don't make your money writing, you will have cheated the world. I refer you to this entry which is a quote from my first pastor regarding profanity. Now, that is not to say I haven't used it, extensively. Even to the point that profanity became a verbal crutch. This is precisely why I don't curse at all now, well verbally anyway. It's a long story I won't bore you or myself with. Unfortunate thing about cussing is, it runs in your head forever. It's your journal, you cuss if you want to. Understand I'm not judging you, because I've been there. I just chose a different path with which I'm happier... and more user friendly!

Re: Yes, I am "the one"

The older I get, the more I understand just what a big deal profanity really is. I was raised in it, been doing it since I could talk anyway, and nobody corrected me. I knew it wasn't acceptible in school, and other assorted situations, but that was about it. But lately it seems like, as you said kind of, a crutch, something to use when your skills as a writer (or speaker) fail you. And like the OKB said, I'm too competent to rely on it as I do.

Mind you, I still don't feel comfortable being told how good of a what I am, but if my girlfriend likes the change, that's all the reinforcement I really need. :)
