I think I use gosh darn and meanie head,.well "meanie pants" more than swearing these days. cause swearing might make you feel validated, "meanie pants" will make you smile and laugh again and forget why you were upset in the first place.
I did this the other weekend.except replace "monsters" with "zombies." Someone was shooting off and I thought, "What if those are rifles? What if it's zombies?" This is why I choose not to watch scary movies! :) I've got "scary" covered.
