While cleaning out the fridge, J said, “I shouldn’t learn any more Hebrew.  All they do is say bad words.  You know what they say?  Shit.  They say shit a lot.”  

“Who does that?” I asked. 

“Everyone,” he replied. “Even the word for rainbow has shit in it.  ‘Keshet’ is like ‘Keh- shit.’  That’s gross.” 

“They aren’t saying those words to be gross, J,” I said.  “Hebrew has it’s own special bad words.” 

“Well, they don’t need special bad words when they say shit all the time.” 

 

 

Note: Before I get scathing messages, he knows not to use this word.
