Monday was the first day of baseball practice and as I was sitting talking story with one of my veteran players, I couldn't help but notice all these kids doing nothing but hanging around and acting like typical kids - running around, teasing, playing, swearing.
Yup, swearing. The kids ranged from 9 - 12 and while everyone of them swore at one point or another, there was this one particular kid that used the F-word in just about every other word in a sentence. He used it just like how we use "da kine" for everything and no one was phased that all this profanity was coming out of this small pa-tut.
Wassap Wit Dat?
My player mentioned that "he does it all the time" and I was floored. Everytime he swore all I could think about was if he did this at home because for a kid his age to have any self control in different environments to manage his tongue just didn't seem possible. Where did he pick up such a nasty habit? The other kids around him swore also but nowhere near this profanity filled ten year old mouth. Wea da damn soap?
We sat around for about 15 minutes and in that time if I got paid $1 for everytime he said the F-word, I would be able to buy a home...in Hawaii Kai! Now where the f--- did he get such a f----n dirty a-- mouth talking all that s--- so every f----n person can hear those nasty a-- words?
I have no f---n clue.
