She Thinks Her Kids Are All Swell-o-matic

For the past few days, I have had an overwhelming urge to say "swell-o-matic." Why is this? There is an episode of Rugrats that attempts to teach kids not to use bad words. Anyway, the word of the week is supposed to be "swell-o-matic," but Angelica overhears a bad word and thinks that's the word of the week instead. I haven't seen the Rugrats in forever, and I'm not really sure why this particular episode is looping through my head, but it isn't very swell-o-matic.

I know I'm usually pretty irreverent and silly on here, but tonight I'm finding it a bit hard. I won't bore you with the details, but there is something in my life that is driving me absolutely nuts right now. And it's something that I can't really change, although I am doing what I can to make it better. I always come out OK in the end, I have faith in this. I guess I'm just having an off day today...But do stay tuned, I'll bounce back. Y'all stay swell-o-matic, I know I'm trying.

Never saw that episode. For a cartoon that covered swearing, SpongeBob had a good one. SpongeBob sees some grafitti with a word he doesn't know. His buddy Patrick says it's one of those spicy words adults use in conversation. Every time they use the word, a dolphin noise is heard. Eventually they learn not to say it along with a dozen others.

Sorry, I shouldn't have rambled on about a cartoon. I will pray for you to get through whatever it is that's driving you nuts.

I wonder what swear word sounds like swell-o-matic?

Thanks, aAmigo, for praying for me, I really appreciate that. And I don't mind you rambling about the cartoon- it made me laugh. I like SpongeBob too! As for what sounds like swell-o-matic, I don't know, they did the car horn/scream/noise kind of thing on the Rugrats episode too. Thanks for cheering me up a bit!

See I enjoyed when south park did their learning not to swear episode. Showing how taboo swearing is. And I am evil, so that helped a little. Now Nettie, I would tell you things to bring you up but people like me like people that are sorrier than them.

Swell-O-Matic? That sounds like something The Simpson's Ned Flanders would say.

It does have a nice ring to it.
