A Freakin elephant?

I’m still not in the mood.

Here is an e-mail forward from my dear blogging buddy Sheila.

And the mom’s advice for the day is to teach your slang straight.

The moral of the story. If you are going to say freakin, like me, make sure your kids know how to spell it.

You also need to make sure that they don’t repeat the word in front of my mom. She thinks the word freakin is as bad as the real thing.

My five-year old students are learning to read.
Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,
‘Look at this! It’s a frickin’ elephant!’
I took a deep breath, then asked…’What did you call it?’
‘It’s a frickin’ elephant! It says so on the picture!’
And so it does…

‘ A f r i c a n Elephant ‘



  1. Thanks for reminding me of the joke… oops! Your Mom is gonna call me or wash my mouth out with soap. I know I say freakin’ way too much… I will try to do better.ToOdLeS.ShEiLA

  2. We are not aloud to say that at this house, but I think I say it way to much on my blog… oops…I say frickin’ too, and I know how to spell it, do ya still love me anyways

  3. And I have always heard about your blog. Can’t wait to be blogging friends. Seems like your family is doing great. Have a “frican” day🙂

  4. Love that story! So cute…LOL…I say the word freakin too much — I try not to say it in front of the kids, but who decided it was bad? It’s not really, is it?? Is it because it’s so similar to the other word??Who knows…
