this is the moment that made me question the entire English language as a child. now thinking about it years later makes me laugh but I still have moment like this to this day.
wait i thought swearing was bad and in not allowed to watch stuff with swears
I swear i didn't !
MOM! why are you watching stuff with swears.
that wasn't a swear.
but he said I SWEAR
he meant "I promise"
my mom was watching on the t.v. and i noticed on of the characters said "i swear"
but how does that work
swear means "promise" but it can also mean bad word.
I yelled at her because she has told me not to watch stuff in the past because it has "swears" in it.
sometimes words can mean more than one thing. it can be confusing.
yea that's kind of strange
she told me what it actual meant and it confused me to the point of questioning what my mom has said before
yea but you will figure it out
i wanted to know why and she didn't explain it to well
she ended up just telling me that some words mean something els and that made me thingk to the point of a headeack
i ended up brainstorming all the words that i could think of and mix and matching to see if the word could mean the other word and then sort of questioned all of the English language. I couldn't comprehend what she meant and it makes me laugh to this day.
