Charlotte Parent: Curse Of The Open Mouth

Way back in once upon a time time, if you dudes heard me screaming, “Golfcarts!” you knew I was having an appalling moment.

No, not a normal curse word, but I think we can all agree that no one has ever accused me of being normal and made it stick.

As far as I’m concerned, there are no inherently bad words. No words that, when used, will hurt the listener or the speaker. Which means that words only have the impact that we as a culture give them.

Which is what makes cursing so much fun for young dudes.

Today at Charlotte Parent, where I’ll be blogging under our Stay-At-Home Dudes column name, I’m talking about curse words. And how a little dude who couldn’t remember a simple request if his life depended on it, will never forget the one time “$h!+” slips out of your mouth.

Join us, won’t you, as we all head to Charlotte Parent for the day?

Tuesday’s Tumultuous Tribute

Howdy, dudes and dudettes.

I’m not here. Well, I’m not ever really here, but I’m even less here than normal today. Yeah, in case you didn’t notice, today is, in fact, Tuesday.

Which means, or at least has meant for the last couple of months, that I’m over at Charlotte Parent, blogging under our Stay-At-Home Dudes column.

This time around, I’m going to talk a little about why I thought Captain America: The Winter Soldier was such a fantastic movie.

Go read that column, then, once you do, come back here on Friday for the full-strength version of the thing. I think you’ll like both of them.

If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be mumblemumblesomethingsomething

Will I get in trouble if I say this is my time of the week?

No, probably not. Not enough people reading this thing* to worry about anyone getting on my case. Most of you folks are either nice, know me well enough to know I’m harmless or are family and, in that last case, I know about you, too, so don’t even try.

Anyway, I wanted to point you in the direction of, yet again, the Charlotte Parent Magazine community blogs Stay-At-Home Dudes site where I’ve written a little bit for them. In other words, this is the day of the week where I put in some time over there. This time I’m talking about surviving a torture most cruel and unusual and me doing the most amazing thing ever.

Small taste for when you go there: I Punked The Batman!**

I’ll be back here with more good stuff. That was a promise, not a threat. I’ve been told that people often have a hard time distinguishing between the two when I’m saying them. Not sure I understand, but there you go.

Footnotes and Errata

* Except for the 160-odd of you dudes who decided on Sunday to start reading a four-year-old post about horrifying members of class insecta called Palmetto Bugs. No, I don’t get it either, but I’m certainly glad you (or they) visited. I might have to start writing more about cockroaches and the rest of those types.
** Not kidding, either. I’ve got photographic evidence. Go there now and read all about it.
