Exam results and swearing

Well, my son's first year A level results were not too good. He didn't fail but they were nowhere near what they should have been. I wouldn't be upset if I thought he wasn't very able - I'd be proud of his achievement whatever his grade. What makes me sad is that he is able, but he doesn't apply himself, through a combination of stubbornness, not enough faith in himself, and lack of application. But I have decided that I am not going to be angry, or tell him he hasn't done well enough, or that he has to change his ways. I've got one consistent message I am going to stick to: 'I believe you can do better'. I think my belief in him is the only thing I can contribute; at his age, he has to find the rest himself.

Fortuitously, glitterboy points to the silliest quiz ever - 'what swear word are you?'

Your word is FUCK. You like to come across as rude
and rebellious, and often you do. You also are
intelligent and maybe surprisingly sensitive,
though God help anyone who said that in front
of your friends.
