“I never exactly made a book. It's rather like taking dictation. I was given things to say. ”

What is it about "bad" words that makes it feel so good to use them? I have this theory; it is more acceptable to use bad words than to express negative emotions. A string of expletives will soon be forgotten, as Daddy used to always tell me, when you start cussin' folks stop listenin!
My theory is that a rant filled with four letter words is liken to weaving an invisible shield around my real feelin's. It's kinda like a really long sentence...a lot'a shit gets missed.
