The uses of profanity

Most days I hear a lot of profanity being spoken.   Too much…way too much.  However, the funny thing is that I don’t have anything against profanity per se.  In my opinion there’s nothing wrong with profanity, when used appropriately at the right times.    Back in 1965 the novelist Wallace Stegner said something similar to what I would want to say about the matter.

As someone involved in the housing industry I particularly appreciated this unique analogy:

Some acts, like some words, were never meant to be casual. That is why houses contain bedrooms and bathrooms.
