The Viewer Created Friday Five continues here with Volume II as I attempt to answer some of the more light-hearted, miscellaneous questions posed …
1.) What swear words do you say when you hurt yourself, like hitting a finger with a hammer?
Yeah, I still swear, hasn’t that already been phucking established ?? LOL 🙂 Though I really have cut it down considerably from my days as a boy. hehe Plus I’m really trying to use less extreme swear words than I’ve used in the past … “asshole” and “dammit” are my frequent words of choice these days.
However … I really do still like the word “phuck” and it’s various derivatives … “phucking asshole” is one of my more bolder, aggressive standby’s now.
And in times of extreme distress or pain, such as hammering my thumb, I tend to continue stringing together an assorted list of swear words in a totally random manner … “cock sucking mutha fucking son of a bitch“. I really don’t remember the last time I strung that sort of word set together. Though I think I did mutter under my breath reference to some jerk a week or so ago as a “cock sucking douche bag“. Nice Amy, Nice. I’ve got a ways to go, huh? 🙂
Now despite the fact that I really am trying not to swear nearly as much, I am finding myself more likely now to swear in front of women instead of men. Unless of course I’m doing a strategically placed flirt with a guy in the bar while watching a basketball game … opining in a very mild, nonchalant, dismissive manner that so-and-so is an “asshole” seems to catch the interest of guys at times. I haven’t quite figured out why … but it does seem to work.
2. What, exactly, is a White Castle food item?
White Castle is a fast food restaurant chain located predominantly in the midwest that is known for their inexpensive, steam fried, thin hamburgers with holes in them that are cooked on a bed of chopped onions. Among the devotees, they are commonly known as “sliders” (“slyders” in true White Castle lingo), because they tend to slide right through your system. White Castle is the oldest hamburger chain in the United States. Sweet !! 🙂 There are 18 White Castle burgers to a pound of beef, making them rather small in size and almost more of an appetizer than a burger meal, which is why consuming 1/2 dozen sliders is really no big deal. The hamburgers come with little holes in them so that when they are cooking, they don’t have to be flipped on the grill. I’ve learned most of this krap from reading the little paper placemat they provide for you in their very sterile looking, white and polished steel restaurants.
I guess a slider is an acquired tasted, you either like them or you don’t. I love them !!! 🙂 Their crinkle cut fries are great, along with their shakes. I usually add one of their chicken or fish sandwiches to the order just to break up the onslaught.
