I have decided that the word "Vex" doesn't get enough love in this day and age.

So, from now one it is joining daily vocabulary. Y'see, I'm trying hard to not swear as much as I do, so I have phrases that I like to call my "Tarantino directs Sesame Street" phrases. So it's as though I'm swearing without having a dirty potty mouth.

For example - Son of a bitch is now "Son of a goat!"
Other exclamations are "Holy Mary Mother of Pearl!!"
"Sweet Mary Lou!"
And now instead of saying "Fuck you shit me!" I shall say, "You vex me; you vex me to tears!"

I still can't get out of the habit of when I'm startled saying "Fuck me Jesus!!" It rolls off the tongue and is extremely satisfying to yell.

It is a brilliant word. I think it will be going in my all time favourites.

I like the old " a pox upon you" thing. Historical and kinda classy. ;-)

That is a good one! Language is so cool when you get down to the brass tacks of it.
