Casual Swearing (1)

I like the casual use of—often rather strong—swearing in very day-to-day situations. Last night, there was a small group of people standing outside the Sainsbury’s Local on the corner. The following conversation took place:

– Have you got the hummus?
– Yeah, sure.
– Thank fuck.

The singsongy rhythm of the last couple of phrases was particularly neat.
