It still shocks me when I hear an "F-Bomb" or another swear word come out of the mouth of a child.   Somehow--that's just NOT RIGHT.   I remember my mom saying "Cripes Mur-rire"  Whatever that means.   Thinking back about our parents and grandparents and what they wonder what your great-great-grandpa said when he stubbed his toe?
