Consider this implemented. Our two-year-old was driving around the kitchen on his plastic truck the other day shouting "[the F word]!" and "GOD DAMN IT!". So obviously our use of "Malkovich" is not exactly working. Will have to try Sean's alternative.

Did this actually help to locate the shoes? Because if so, I will *definitely* be feng shui-ing the next time I can't find the shoes I know I wore earlier in the week.

Admittedly, I replace 'shit!' with 'shiitake!' from time to time. Although the feeling behind the sentiment is the same, it seems to be a bit more pleasing to my mother's ears. And let's face it, no matter how old we get, our mother's opinion still matters to us.

Snot is a good one, and gives me almost the same pleasing sensation as the other 4 letter S word. You can drag it out just the same -and I can say it in front of the middle school kids I teach.

Where the Feng Shui is the bachelor post? Just Kidding. You are the reason I started watching the bachelor. I found your blog through a friend of mine & I fell in love with it. My 3 year old started calling random people "You stupid bitch" after a road rage incident we had not too long ago!!

I'm sure it's cleansing, especially when uttered during deep breathing and removing a trash can from your wealth quadrant.

Leave it to Sean to say something brilliant.

He is my Internet "hero" of awesome one-liners. I think you should make a book up of Sean's comments.

I dunno, lost shoes seem to call for the real thing.

a word beginning with three F's? ... that's Welsh, surely?
