Well now there is a perfectly legitimate reason for my trucker mouth. As if I needed one, but whatever. Check it out:
Curse Words Help Numb Pain
Though I can't honestly say cursing makes anything I do to myself in the name of being a klutz any less painful, it certainly doesn't make it hurt any more. So fuck it. What's the normal person's verbal response to pain of any kind? Cursing. Real people don't say "shoot" or "darn" when they burn themselves on the stove. Real people say "shit" or "fuck" or, in my case "motherfucker!" We're not television characters. So curse away folks, and in the process you may actually ease some of your pain, who knows?
