Cori: We all have those moments when we lose our cool. Some handle it better than others. Many of us take to spouting off at the mouth when we're frustrated, but there are some instances where that's just not the most appropriate thing to do, like if there are kids around...or you're in church!

Example: My 6 year old daughter, Mary, decided to express her creativity...with a screw...on the side of my van. In that minute, there were definitely some choice words I wanted to say. What I said instead was much more PG.

The side of my van, after my 6-yr-old "drew on it" with a screw. Cori Skall

J Stew: I have a fairly decent backlog of faux swear words. I used to work in open kitchens when I was younger, and sometimes you need to swear when you've gotten your fourth 3rd degree burn for the evening, or cut yourself. But since customers can hear you, you've gotta keep it chill.

My 2nd favorite word starting with F and ending with C & K, is fiddlesticks. I also enjoy swearing like an 1840's gold prospector. Things like gall-dang-it, or consarnet. Or sometimes a good old fashioned "feedeley-dee" is in order. But we've alllll been there before. But I gotta say, usually my mouth moves faster than my brain, so... trouble...
