  One Response to “”

  1. re; F-bombs: I never heard the word used until I was a young bride with a spouse in the Army. It doesn’t bother me now and I sometimes say it myself. It’s just a word.

    BUT I’m so tired of repeated f–f–f– on tv and movies. Ray Donovan has a compelling story and characters, but nearly every line includes “the f-word.” It gets boring and silly.

    Are writers so unimaginative that they can’t find other words in the English language to emphasize a point?
