1. Great piece on one of my favorite linguistic topics, Matt. I had to laugh at the idea that a young person today (your server) would even notice your use of the F-word, but I’m probably over-generalizing.

    Love your punch line!

    • Hi Jan – The only reason the young server would’ve blanched at the use of the F-word is because of how old everyone at the table was. He probably thinks we don’t know what it means.

      And thanks. 😉
