We were working on a project for Christmas out on the front porch. Yordanos reached for a marker, realized it was the wrong one, and said, "Damn."
I asked calmly, "What did you just say?"
She said, just as calmly, "Damn."
I said, "Oh, ok, that's what I thought you said. That's a bad word. We don't say that."
She said "Oh, ok." She paused, "Why is it a bad word?"
I gave a lame-o answer about some words being used in a bad way. Lee gave a much better answer later... that it means the opposite of blessing someone.
Then, of course, I tried to remember if I ever used "Damn" in front of them. It's not my swear word of choice, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't me.
HOWEVER, when you hear Yordanos say, "And I was like, YOU KNOW," you'll know that WAS me. D'oh.
