Me~"Yup, she did."
Jules~"That is BAAAAD."
Me~"She was just announcing the name of the rock group, hon. A long time ago, during the Civil war, the country was split into two groups. The Northerners were called Yankees. So when the Southerners talked about them, they'd call them the Da$% Yankees."
Jules~"Oh. Wow." (thoughtful pause) "So can I say it? Cuz she did. And you did. So can I?"
Me~"Nope. I only said it to tell you a story. And she said it to name the group."
I thought for a second.
Me~"You know what? It's your choice."
Jules~"Really? I can swear if I want? You won't get mad?"
Me~"It's your choice. You can decide for yourself." (smug mother expression, knowing she will make the right decision)
Jules~"DAMN YANKEES!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! THAT WAS SO MUCH FUN! MOM, IF YOU GIVE ME A CHANCE TO SWEAR, I'LL TAKE IT!"
And I bent over and picked up the apple that didn't fall far from the tree.
