So the Captain has notified the Officers that he is offended by foul language and would appreciate it if we would modify our language when we are in his presence. I have personally been spoken to twice about my potty mouth. I think I might be out of control. Of course swearing has now become a way for us raunchy sailors to band together and stick it to the man in an underground cult-like fashion. Swearing is officially the new 'it'. We are now dredging up as many alternatives we can find that aren't strictly swearing but are nothing if not more vulgar than a casual f-bomb. People are quick to point out when you swear....a bridge conversation today went like this: 'Oh S@*#! I forgot my hourly position! Whoopsies!' 'Hey, Watch your language!' 'What?! There's nothing wrong with Whoopsie!' Which quickly reduced me to fits of giggles because I didn't even realize I had said a bad word! My Grandmother always said that there was nothing worse than seeing a swear word in the written form. Because it meant that you truly had no class. So, I realize I'm walking a fine line in writing about my little problem with foul language.
