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.

Although, I will admit that once one of them said to me "We know what you really want to say when you say that."

Daily Tragedies -- it did indeed work. He found the shoes under the Elephant Chair in the bedroom, an appropriately Feng Shui-ish Asian zen sort of place for them to be, I think...

I first saw "FUCK-rying out loud" deployed in expert fashion by Dawn French in The Vicar Of Dibley. You see, it's always salvagable...

I said "bloody" in front of my class today but they didn't seem to notice. Year 2 tend to write a lot of words phonetically- can't is one to watch out for.

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?
