I recall exactly the day I first used a dirty word. The word was “shit.” I knew every dirty word, but I also knew I wasn’t allowed to use them. I was in junior high. I was at the swimming pool. I was walking on the deck near the shallow end and someone made me mad – don’t remember who. I uttered the word “shit.” I waited for lightening to strike or some other horrific event to beset me. Nothing. A watershed moment for my vocabulary, which went downhill at 120 mph after that.
