I was a career Marine . I assure you that I know, and often use, a few turns of the tongue that would make you blush. I tell my Number One (age 9) and his friends, quite often, that I have little concern regarding foul language. Habitual cursing is a failure of the imagination as much as it is a lack of education and poise. I am deeply concerned, however, that he speaks to others with respect, as this is a measure of his self image.
To my real interest, let me tell you - the apple does not fall far from the tree. As you grow older, you will recognize your parents more readily
. In your whole life, no one will ever love you like they do. Not even your son.
