Hell Fire and Damnation

I was just preached a lengthy sermon by Righteous Resident for using the word "heck." Yes, you read that correctly. HECK. As in, when Righteous Resident asked me how my day was I replied with "Busy as heck." Seemingly benign, right?

Wrong. Apparently, heck is "just a Christian cuss word," and the Lord imparted it upon Righteous Resident's heart to take it out of their vocabulary over 40 years ago. Hmm. Missed that memo.

I guess next time I'll just say "I'm really fucking busy." And then spew pea soup all over my desk.
