lot words

“Stick and stone will break my bones but words can never hurt Me.” but words can hurt and do at times. Words can heal, I have heard of healing words. Good words and bad word, cuss words, and love words, well there are a lot of words. Just what are words?

Well! That may have help, somewhat, maybe. I don’t know. Now back when I was a young man about four or five, I was taught that there were words that I was not to use. If you did you just might find out what lye soap taste like. One of those words that were forbidden was “dam”. For years every time I heard someone say it, I was looking around for ma or grandma to come running with the soap. I wonder if they call that operation a soap opera, kind of sounded that way.  We move to a town where there was a dam and people were all the time saying “let’s go to the dam”.  I had great concern for them say such a thing till I went. When I got old enough to read and look up words in the dictionary, I found no good reason that “dam” should be forbidden. Now some people say “darn” as if that cleans things up a bit, but darn is what you do to socks and knitted things. Dam is to contain or confined the flow of water or something. It is also what you call the mother of a horse. Well now I have driven a few nails in my day and missed the nail once or twice, and got my thumb. When I did I said “God Dam it” and he did. It only took a split second for a blister to form, and some people say God dose not listen or answers prayers. Well they got that one wrong anyway.

 In the news there has been a lot of talk about someone saying an “N word” now I don’t know this Paula Deen other than some pies she got her name on, I have ate better. I don’t know just what all she has said. All this politically correct stuff I am not sure of. I am not a Politician and would run and hide if someone tried to make into one. Now I am a racist to the point that I hate racism.

However I do think we all need to take and learn the real meaning of the words and the context they are use in. Just because someone calls you an “A word or a B word” does not make you one till you react to it and then you may become the dictionary. If we all went around talking or writing with the “___ words, A word, B word, C word, N word, R word, or XYZ words” it might look like this (I C U R 2Ys, 2Ys I C  U R 4 (ME)) or (C U M (L 8 OR)) “1940’s texting” and the kids think they started something new, LOL. It did mean lots of love, and lots of luck, and now laugh out loud, oh! well things change.   

Thank you for coming by and for your comments God bless.
