My Language Habits
An acquaintance noted, "I never hear you swear."
Probably accurate. I seldom use harsh language, finding it generally pointless. Generally, I also find it offensive. Some people I find quite funny do (or did) use such language, but I'm not on stage performing like George Carlin or Denis Leary.
Language should be as precise and clear as possible. Clarity does not require any of Carlin's famous words.
The same acquaintance observed that I seem far too serious.
So the lesson for the week is that people expect others to be profane and funny? No wonder I like sitting at home with the cats. They are easier to entertain and don't mind that I'm quiet.
Part of me wishes humans could be entertained with laser pointers and catnip mice on strings.
