I am chuckling today thinking about some things I heard and read over the past weekend. My husband had occasion to use the word "pee" and the expression "S.O.B." in his sermons and homilies on Sunday....long story and explanation not required for this post.
But this morning I was reading an online news report from our area that really had me laughing. It was a report on mosquito control for this summer. According to the report we will all be okay this summer because, unlike in former years with this much moisture and therefore so many mosquitoes waiting to hatch in every puddle and river and lake and slough, THIS YEAR there are employees all ready out spraying "the little buggers!"
I don't know who wrote the news item. I am surmising it is someone from the Atlantic provinces where the word "bugger" is more acceptable in common useage, but still causes some jaw dropping out here in the west. Or it is simply someone who didn't grow up with that word being on the "I'm gonna wash your mouth out with soap young lady" list my generation of westerners grew up with.
To whoever is responsible for writing that little article and to whichever proof reader let that one get by unedited, thank you for one of the best early morning laughs I have had in awhile. Rude, crude and hysterical for its shock value.
