Translation Tuesday: How to Curse Like A Southern Belle

March 26, 2013

Confession- I have a bit of a bad mouth. In fact, the Bestie generally gives me the evil eye at least once or twice when I am visiting the North and I say a curse word. I don’t know why I curse, the words just slip out. Maybe it is because I am around college students all the time and they curse. Maybe I was a pirate in another life. Who knows. But I have to get better about this little issue, especially as I have all these cute nieces and nephews now and I would prefer that they not accidentally repeat the F-word when they are five or so after being around their awesome Auntie. So, I need to adapt. I came across this gem on Pinterest from Southern Living. Cute southern adaptations when one needs to yell (I don’t know about you, but I feel better after being able to yell at someone after they cut me off on the freeway, even if they can’t hear me). So do you have any sayings you use in place of curse words? Personally, I have been loving “Son of a Biscuit!”

    Too funny! I use son of a biscuit eater all the time! And shiitake mushrooms. But then I usually just pile on the rest of the normal curse words.
