"Oh for Pete's sake!"

My mom has said this for years.  She was raised in the Church of Christ and her mother allowed nothing that could be regarded as cursing.  If I remember right, she couldn't even say "darn."  When she is frustrated, she can be heard exlaiming, "Oh for Pete's sake!"

I've always wondered who Pete is.

Kevinism

My dear husband Kevin is another person whose language prevents me from sharing most of his isms.  There are a few that are safe for the public, though.  For example, if he's trying to make the point that something is outdated, he uses the year "Nineteen Dickety Two."

"We really need to get an air conditioner that wasn't installed in Nineteen Dickety Two!"
