(overheard from the backseat between Red and his friend Big Jack)
“…then there’s the S word. You should never say the S word, it’s a really bad word.” I knew that one: stupid. I actually said it this morning out of frustration and was very quickly called out for my carelessness.
“Yeah, you should never say the S word.” Jack agrees, it’s clearly taboo in his home as well. Or something that starts with S is taboo.
“But there’s also the I word, that’s also a really bad word.” I’m sure you’re thinking what I’m thinking, the word I spell when talking to my husband about the drivers: i-d-i-o-t.
“What’s the I word?” his friend queeries, unfamiliar.
(Red whispers) “Impossible.”
