    Tho you know, he does sound a little square with this kind of jive in his mouth. It’s clearly not his day-to-day. But hey, it’s square to be hip, anyway.

    I know! He does sound rather uncomfortable. He should have had my mom’s friend Camille read the audiobook—though I suppose then we wouldn’t be hearing snippets of it on the Internet. But she is the completest master of casual and constant profanity; my brother used to do very fine impressions of her at the dinner table*, so he could probably have done Obama’s audiobook, too.

    *Which gives you an idea of the level of discourse in my impeccably napkin-clad ancestral home.

    We probably need to have another cakefest with head-sized cakes, and perhaps some sumo wrestlers’ poison, and Camille. Ross’ sister in law, with whom I have spent a lot of time on family weekends and all that, told me recently – with a kind of awe – that I say ‘fuck’ more in a casual conversation than she has heard in her entire life. It is true. There are so many friendly uses for words like cunt, fuck and bollock.

    Age before beauty Cindy. Camille’s been doing it longer: she’s about seventy-five. I think if you met her you’d agree that she’s earned her place at the top.

    I don’t think we need to be competitive. The world is (almost) large enough for the both of us.

    Oh, it’s a casual swearword smackdown. I thought it was going to be a cloth napkin kind of thing. I’ll have to switch gears.
