Mom:  Maybe don’t say so many fucks in your blog.
Me:  Why not?  If it’s the word I want to use, then I should be honest about it and not say frig when I mean fuck.
Mom:  But fuck is a bad word.  You don’t want people to think less of you.
Me:  Mom, I writer thrillers.  I write about death and dismemberment and serial killers and torture and kidnapping and blood.
Mom:  That’s all fine, but just don’t say fuck.
