New Rules -- If It's Irish ...

So yesterday I made the blanket family rule that, for that day and that day only, the kids could use curse words but only if they were speaking in an Irish accent.

The result? A day of feckin' this and feckin' that.

That night before bed, my twelve year old asked me what tomorrow's accent would be.


To qualify for a day of free cursing while speaking in a foreign accent, however, they have to go online, find audio clips of the foreign language and English being spoken by identified non-native speaker, find three facts about said culture, etc ... Let's do this right.
