    Somehow, it has become “Holy balls”. I also overuse “Geez”. I really need to stop that.

    As for funny ones, my dad is full of them.

    I love “Holy Balls” … I might have to steal that around here. LOL I don’t know … I don’t have little kids so my language is probably more PG/PG13 … if something’s bad I’m likely to say something like, “Sweet baby Jesus … ” or if it’s worse, “You have to be f*’n kidding me …” … if something’s good it’s more like, “Awesome sauce …” … I’m terribly boring …

    I asked the little french lady what it meant.
    Something like “dagnabbbit.”

    I can’t think of any phrase that I use all the time. It’s probably something like “Well, s..t!”
