The arty farty types have been tryng to develop a fluster around the DCAL Minister, Nelson McCausland, expressing his dislike of excessive swearing in a play. My reaction was somewhat different particularly when I read the line:
"...some people are particularly prone to swear."
I can imagine my name crossing his mind as he typed that line. I must admit to taking advantage of his dilike of swearing in the past. He used to be my boss and I discovered that excessive Anglo-Saxon was a good way of getting him to go away a little quicker particularly when he was giving me some thankless task.
As to my present campaign to give up my vice, it has slipped back a bit but overall my langauge has improved.
