The Lovely Sound of Dammit

I don’t like singling out specific bloggers on their birthday, because so many people have a special meaning for me, and I would feel obligated to write a post for every single person on his or her birthday, and then this blog would get pretty tedious, right?

But Dammit, it’s my blog. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut. Because someone has proven to be super extra special.


Happy birthday, Maggie of Okay, Fine, Dammit and Violence Unsilenced. You have single-handedly turned the word Dammit into a term of beauty and compassion!

    Dammit is a special lady, and a very dear friend. And now I feel I must have a shot every time I think of her.

    I just made my kids watch that video. The 4-year-old is especially horrified.

    Thank you for this, my friend. I’m so grateful to know you.

    I gotta go do a shot.

    A 24 Dammit game – that’s hilarious! Now, that could be a way for my husband to convince me to start watching again 🙂
