F. FU*% - AND OTHER FORTUITOUS FUSSES FOR FOLKS IN FLOATING FLATS

A-Z: Our 30 day mission: to bring you a tasty boat life tidbit of the day, washed down with a shot of snarky slang. Boat.Life.Larks


There's all sorts of F words out there, but this is a family site! 

We recently watched All is Lost, starring Robert Redford. I had avoided watching it for a long time, as I had suspected it wasn't an episode of Friends. What struck me was the long trail of suffering and pain he endured before finally succumbing to the F word! I'm more like Hugh Grant at the beginning of Four Weddings and a Funeral. I let the expletives fly over the smallest things. 
 
For instance, where is my pencil? I just had it in my hand. It should be right here, and yet it isn't. It's a boat and not a mansion, how far could it have gotten? It's time to unleash a tirade of profanity!

Winding myself up screaming curses at my fellow man on I-95 isn't actually helping my blood pressure; there's a definite need on board for fewer tirades and more tranquility. It's time for SERENITY NOW! (Starting NOW!)

Daily Dictionary

F---: When ---- and ----- the ------ ----- --------
F----: --------------------- (s)
F---You, You F------ F--- S---: You're the best!

What's your swearing style? Do you let the expletives fly, respond with silence, or scream Serenity Now?

  1. I don't tend to swear very often, so when I do, it gets everyone's attention.

  3. I go through phases and sometimes find myself swearing like a real sailor . . . our recent drive up the I-5 from Central California to Washington would be a good example.

    1. Driving really brings out the worst in me, hence the boating instead of RV-ing!

  4. I have never heard the F-word come out of my husband's mouth as much as during the eight years we lived and cruised on our sailboat! For some reason, a boat has a mind on its own, with many edges to bump your head on or whack your toes. And, things break all the time, while refusing to get fixed the first try around! But, believe me, using verbal language when mad at the boat is better than hitting it and breaking your (his) hand! :-) I get mad - and curse - less often, but the boat used to bring out the worst in me as well!

    1. Good to know I am not alone! It's the blankety-blank boat's fault!

  5. I do swear a lot, although never in class or in front of children. It took me some time to start swearing in English... Hungarian language is famous for good cursewords. :D

  6. In high school, it was my classmates secret goal to get me to swear. They thought they had succeeded when I told them something was absolutely asinine. ;)
