Who thought this educating children was a good idea?
There was I, innocently
When you're nine, there is nothing funnier than swearing.
I had an entire afternoon of the nine year old, and then of course, the seven year old yelling 'Total Feckin' Eeejit!' and then collapsing in giggles. Thank God the baby has speech delay or we'd have been in real trouble. She just joined in the hysterical giggles.
It was eldest sons first bit of news when Mr Oubliette came home.
"Guess what Daddy?"
"Mammy knows someone called Total Fucking Eejit!" (Yes, it had become 'Fucking eejit' by then.)
Keep them ignorant I say.
On further news, it may have become clear to some people that I might not have managed to get my genius amazing mindblowingly brilliant work into a publication (or two!) this week. Of course, being me, I am used to rejection. And, you know, I don't really mind if there is a delay in my complete supreme talent being recognised. It's just the other people doing well I don't like. Makes me bitter. Worse than a lemon. Everyone must fail. Okay, now that that's clear, I'll move on.
Just don't expect my congratulations to sound sincere.
