Your need/desire to spice speeches up with expletives cracks me up.

Ahh, I think Denny and I play that up more on the forum than it is reality. I actually do a lot of pseudo-swearing in my presentations, where I leave you with the impression that I've sworn but haven't really. Most of the time, I use it as punctuation and a key for people to laugh and drive home a point.

And the latent Catholic School student in me laughs in glee at the "wrongness" of it. I admit, childish.

I did a floor speech one time dealing with a bill that would have cut funding for dental care for low income people.

"If people are interviewing for a job and it comes down to two equally qualified people, and one provides a great smile and the other a smile that shows teeth needing to be corrected, who do you think gets the job?"

It did not matter, we cut the funding.

Great video!  Astounding that she recovered from surgery that quickly.  Beautiful girl!
