This morning my friend related this story that made me laugh. After church on Sunday, as she was getting in her car, she smashed her forefinger and SWORE! In all honesty I can say that I don't swear, unless you count "proxy swear words" such as "dang", "shoot", and "heck". I have to admit, that on rare occasion, when I'm fed up with someone's "C**P" I might use that word. My neighbor thinks that word is worse than it's companion "S" swear word. But in my life growing up, it wasn't considered that bad. I don't consider myself a swearer. But this friend of mine does occasionally let one slip. Her husband asked her if she was okay, and she almost swore again, but at that very moment she looked up and remembered she was in the church parking lot. She looked around and saw some church members coming out to their cars. She wondered if any of them had heard her swear. She did notice one man slinking down in the front seat of his car, trying to pretend he wasn't there. He probably did hear her swear.
Her finger was really hurting. As you all probably know, if you elevate a hurting part, you don't get the throbbing that you normally get. So she held her finger up in the air all the way home so that it wouldn't hurt so bad. And then she realized that another church member had been driving in the car in front of them. From his vantage point, all he could see was her holding up "the finger" all the way home! I think when she realized that, she probably felt like swearing again. :D
