I at the moment need more and better euphemisms for cursewords. I don't like to use foul language, particularly around my wife or other ladies. I feel it is vulgar, unnecessary and impolite.
However, the moving process is giving me more stubbed toes, things dropped on my feet, bashed shins, funny spot on the elbow, and bashed foreheads than my normal six month average in a week. I'm running out of clever imprecations, exultations, and 'ations of any kind.
And let me tell you, friends, there are only so many times in a day you can say, 'God's bloody bodkin', or 'milk and sugar' before your wife starts to look at you kind of strangely.
