My grandmother received our Christmas card today which wishes people to have a "Merry Freakin' Christmas"...
Gram: It's your freakin' Gramma.
Yes, this is seriously what my 78 year old grandmother said to me. Then, later in the conversation....
Me: I sent you a couple of Christmas presents earlier in the week. They should be there in the next day or two.
Gram: Oh, Honey, you shouldn't be sending me things.
Me: No, no, it's just the calendar and then a little thing that probably only you and I would like.
Gram: Well then I am sure that I will freakin' love it.
Apparently, my grandmother feels that if it is an acceptable word on a Christmas card, then it is acceptable for her to use as well. And she is going to start using it often.
